Hi R People:

I sure that this is a really easy question, but here goes:

I'm trying to build a package that will run on both Linux and Windows.

However, there are several commands in a section that will be different in Linux than they are in Windows.

Would I be better off just to build two separate packages, please? If just one is needed, how could I determine which system is running in order to use the correct command, please?

Thanks in advance,
