Installing RcmdrPlugin.IPSUR from Source

The source code for the RcmdrPlugin.IPSUR package is available under the GNU GPL Version 2. The source code is recommended for platforms for which package binaries are not made available. It can also be used by developers on all platforms to modify RcmdrPlugin.IPSUR and redistribute it under the constraints of the GPL.

Note that in order to install from source, you must have the necessary development tools installed. In Windows, a good way to get started would be to look at the R Tools page maintained by Duncan Murdoch, which you can find here. Under Debian/Ubuntu GNU-Linux, this means that you should have the r-base-dev package installed, which you can get with your favorite package manager. For more information, please see the R Installation and Administration Manual.

For all OSes, the general idea to install from source is to open a terminal window, then cd to the directory in which the source code is saved, and finally issue the command R CMD INSTALL RcmdrPlugin.IPSUR_x.x-x, where x.x-x is the version that you have downloaded. Given that you have the correct compilation tools installed and that your system is configured correctly, you should have the package installed in a few moments.
