i'm trying to learn R. i have no programing experience. i tried to add on a package and just picked "yags". i can't get it to work or get any help.

> install.packages("yags")
Warning in install.packages("yags") : argument 'lib' is missing: using 'C:\Documents and Settings\j\My Documents/R/win-library/2.6' trying URL 'http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin/bin/windows/contrib/2.6/yags_4.0-2.zip' Content type 'application/zip' length 183779 bytes (179 Kb) opened URL downloaded 179 Kb package 'yags' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked The downloaded packages are in C:\Documents and Settings\j\Local Settings\Temp\RtmpXGE7rd\downloaded_packages updating HTML package descriptions --- then i tried: ---
> help("yags")
No documentation for 'yags' in specified packages and libraries: you could try 'help.search("yags")' --- help.search doesn't help. when i type library() the result says: --- Packages in library 'C:\Documents and Settings\j\My Documents/R/win-library/2.6': yags Yet Another GEE Solver Packages in library 'C:/PROGRA~1/R/R-26~1.0/library': base The R Base Package boot Bootstrap R (S-Plus) Functions (Canty) class Functions for Classification cluster Cluster Analysis Extended Rousseeuw et al. ... --- i've checked the Admin and Maint manual, but i'm stumped as to how to get yags to actually work. i copied and pasted the example from the html file in the yags folder and after every line that called yags, there was an error message that said: Error: could not find function "yags". ______________________________________________ R-help_at_r-project.org mailing list https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/r-help PLEASE do read the posting guide http://www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html and provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.
