Re: [R] Package Building and Name Space

Hello,

I don't think package gsubfn which is supposed to provide function 'strapply' is the culprit (just yet). The error message was that my own new package has no name space and isn't in the search path (the second is possibly easily explained by the fact that it's supposed to be installed after packaging it ;0).

I'm taking this to the developer list, where it should have gone to begin with ...

Thanks, Joh
