Just installed it on an SGI running IRIX5.3. The install seemed to go fine. Some basic commands worked as did the demo(). However, I get the following when trying to run help at the command line in R. > help() Error in gsub(pattern, replacement, x, ignore.case, extended) : POSIX regular expressions not available > My best guess is that configure was unable to find regcomp. Is that the problem? If so, what is it and how do I fix it. Other suggestions?
