Subject: R-beta: New Packages in CRAN

The following packages have been contributed to CRAN by Thomas Lumley:

	S function and supporting C and Fortran code for adaptive
	quadrature.  The underlyling fortran code is purported to
	work in from 2 to 20 dimensions.

	S original by Michael Meyer (mikem@andrew.cmu.edu).
	R port by Thomas Lumley <thomas@biostat.washington.edu>.

	This library performs an exhaustive search for the best
	subsets of a given set of potential regressors, using a
	branch-and-bound algorithm, and also performs searches using
	a number of less time-consuming techniques. It is designed to
	replace the "leaps()" command in S.=20

	Packaged for R by Thomas Lumley <thomas@biostat.washington.edu>
	and based on FORTRAN77 code by Alan Miller

The tar files are available from the CRAN main site at
