Yes, of course I saw that.

Huh? All the other packages I've installed, and there have been several, I've downloaded from CRAN and used:

% R CMD INSTALL packageName.tar.gz

How am I to do that when I don't have the package. Where is going to come from?

But now I see that there is a "reshape" package in CRAN.

I figured (yes, assumed) that since no mention of CRAN was made at the author's Web page that this release was not distributed there.
