Compiling errors for Matrix_0.995-5.tar.gz under XP

White, Charles E WRAIR-Wash DC
I installed the MinGW-5.0.0 compilers today (gcc-3.4.2 is now contained in the 'Current' distribution. When the current compilers failed to compile the referenced Matrix update and not knowing how to check the exact version numbers for individual files, I applied the Id.exe and f771.exe fixes from the 'Building R for Windows' page (http://www.murdoch-sutherland.com/Rtools/#ldbug). More compiler errors were obtained. I then checked my Pearl version (5.8.7) and updated my R tools since I couldn't tell how old they were. At that point, I obtained the following output:


C:\Documents and Settings\Whitece.AMED\My Documents\1 Pocket Office\R Repository
\lme4>rcmd install matrix_0.995-5.tar.gz

Removing 'C:/PROGRA~1/R/R-22~1.1/library/matrix'
Restoring previous 'C:/PROGRA~1/R/R-22~1.1/library/matrix'

If I need to read one of R's many friendly manuals, I'd appreciate a reference to which one and approximately which section.

Thanks.

Please read the R-admin manual and as it suggests use the candidate
compilers, now gcc 3.4.5.

You also need the Rtools at the front of your path, so you find find.exe
not FIND.exe.

Finally, it seems to be requiring latex, so you may need to install that
(I am really not sure why though).

This looks like an issue with your PATH setting. You're picking up the
wrong "find" command.

According to README.packages,

Instructions for installing the toolset and building packages using the
standard methods are in the `R Installation and Administration' manual
(which is available in various formats as R-admin.* in the doc/manual
directory).

As fara as I can see Appendix F is the most relevant part, but also
look in Ch 3 and 6.
