Typo/bug in R-3.6.0/src/scripts/config ?

Paul Wikramaratna
Hi there,


I think there is a typo in the src/scripts/config file for R 3.6.0


This is my R version:


platform       x86_64-suse-linux-gnu
arch           x86_64
os             linux-gnu
system         x86_64, linux-gnu
status
major          3
minor          6.0
year           2019
month          04
day            26
svn rev        76424
language       R
version.string R version 3.6.0 (2019-04-26)
nickname       Planting of a Tree


I think that on line 277 of src/scripts/config "CXX17PICFLAGSS" should read "CXX17PICFLAGS"


On my UNIX-alike, without this change I get:


R CMD config CXX17PICFLAGS
ERROR: no information for variable 'CXX17PICFLAGS'


but if I delete the second S, then I get:


R CMD config CXX17PICFLAGS
-fPIC


which is the same as on R 3.5.2


Have had a look and couldn't see an existing bug report, apologies if I missed it (am trying to follow the advice here: https://www.r-project.org/bugs.html)<https://www.r-project.org/bugs.html>.


Best, Paul

Thank you, Paul!

The typo is fixed in the sources of both "R-devel" and "R 3.6.0
patched" now.

With grateful regards,
Martin
