[R] Downloading zip files

I have not had a great amount of success installing/updating packages from the "Packages" menu of Rgui under Windows XL. (Except for installing from loacal zip files.)

But I am not asking for help in using these facilities because I prefer to keep a folder of package zip files. On the other hand I do find it tedious having to right-click "Save link as" on every individual file from CRAN.

I'm sure someone knows a faster way to do it.

Cheers, Murray Jorgensen
