Re: [R] RDCOMServer for R 2.0.1 + Windows ?

This is about an Omegahat package.

Especially for packages not on CRAN, please ask the maintainer in the first instance. There were Omegahat mailing lists: I do not know if they are currently operational but this does indicate that R-help is not the appropriate place to ask.

Your questions are about Windows, not R, and the posting guide would point you to R-devel not R-help if either.
