Dear all,

I am trying to build a home-made package (log2html) to log R output to an HTML file. The package can be build successfully under Solaris, however I am unable to build the system under Windows 2000 Professional.

I read (and tried to follow to the letter) Duncan Murdoch's "Building R for Windows" (http://www.murdoch-sutherland.com/Rtools/), in combination with the newest version of R (2.3.1), yet when doing this I receive the following message while compiling the system:

    > R CMD check log2html

In the file D:/tmp/log2html.Rcheck/00install.out are the following messages:

    installing R.css in H:/tmp/log2html.Rcheck     '.' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    '.' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    '.' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    make: *** /log2html: No such file or directory. Stop.     make: *** [pkg-log2html] Error 2

Can anybody provide me with hints how to solve this problem?

Kind regards,

Joost Schalken
