Downloader that Resolves library dependencies

Ulrich Windl
Hi!

If you want to install an extra library like "car", there is a long list of dependencies. If you just download "car", you cannot use it.
Unfortunately the download links offer no solution to select all dependent libraries for download also. It would be nice, however.
(This is interesting for people that want to use R in an Intranet that does not have Internet access)

Regards,
Ulrich

Hello,

Try ?install.packages from within R.

install.packages("car", dependencies = TRUE)

Hope this helps,

Rui Barradas

The package system mechanism is really good, and has its kinked worked
out. He describe an additional constraint from your side ("no internet")
which makes downloading challenging in the first place.

But that question has been answered too, and many times over by now. Eg
