Do you want to model some event data using Point Processes?. I did too, and unfortunately tried to use R to do this.
package ‘ptproc’ is not available (as a binary package for R version 3.1.3)
Great!. So I go here and download the
tar.gz file and try to install from source:
> install.packages("ptproc", repos="http://www.biostat.jhsph.edu/~rpeng/software", type="source") trying URL 'http://www.biostat.jhsph.edu/~rpeng/software/src/contrib/ptproc_1.5-1.tar.gz' Content type 'application/x-gzip' length 282002 bytes (275 KB) opened URL ================================================== downloaded 275 KB * installing *source* package ‘ptproc’ ... ERROR: a 'NAMESPACE' file is required * removing ‘/Library/Frameworks/R.framework/Versions/3.1/Resources/library/ptproc’ The downloaded source packages are in ‘/private/var/folders/0b/qdw3f3zn0gq5yy2cjjpm8cgw0000gn/T/RtmpuW1EPA/downloaded_packages’ Warning message: In install.packages("ptproc", repos = "http://www.biostat.jhsph.edu/~rpeng/software", : installation of package ‘ptproc’ had non-zero exit status
The solution that ended up working was download it manually, add the NAMESPACE file, re-zip, and install:
1 cd ptproc 2 echo 'exportPattern( "." )' > NAMESPACE 3 cd ../ 4 rm ptproc_1.5-1.tar.gz 5 tar cvzf ptproc/ ptproc_1.5-1.tar.gz
I ended up installing the package via RStudio (TOOLS->Install Packages), but it runs from the regular R REPL now also.
