Re: [R] Problem with RCMD build ...

Dear Justin,

I also had similar problems recently... In fact, I have just created a "package" using package.skeleton and if I try to build it without editing the DESCRIPTION file (you did not mention you did, right?) R complains. In fact, it appears to be malformed (I am running version 2.1.0 of R on a Debian (testing) Linux box); it is [sic]:

Package: fooType: Package
Title: What the package does (short line) Version: 1.0
Date: 2005-08-23
Author: Who wrote it
Maintainer: Who to complain to <yourfault@somewhere.net> Description: More about what it does (maybe more than one line) License: What license is it under?

As you can see, the two first lines are pasted together. Can this perhaps be the problem?

Sincerely,

Carlos J. Gil Bellosta
