Title: Functions for updating and installing a new version of R and other
software - from R
-Version: 0.8.8

+Version: 0.9

Author: Tal Galili
Maintainer: Tal Galili <tal.galili@gmail.com>
Description: The 'installr' package aims at making the process of updating R on
- Windows as easy as possible, the main function for this purpose is the
- updateR() function. Also, the package contains a set of functions allowing
- users to install new software (on Windows OS) using R. While for Linux
- users, the installation process of new software may be just running a short
- line of code, for the regular Windows user it often includes browsing
+ Windows as easy as possible. Also, the package contains a (growing) set of functions for allowing
+ users to install new software (on Windows OS) using R. By simply running the installr() function,
+ the user can easily select (via a GUI interface) a software to install. There are also dedicated functions
+ for installing each software, such as: updateR(), install.RTools(), install.pandoc(), and many more.
+ While for Linux users, the installation process of new software may be just running a short
+ line of code, for the regular Windows user it often includes browsing
online, finding the latest version, downloading it, running the installer,
and deleting the installation file. All of these steps are automatically
done using functions in this package.

-------------------------
* uninstall.R() for the old version of R (including the library folder)
* Better integration with the "global library" strategy
- * update RTools to be smarter about how to ask the user what to choose. Also check if the Rtools is already installed or not (devtools has such a function)
- * update README.md for 0.8.5
* Add install.notepad and install.notepadpp
* Maybe add some timer to the os.manage functions. And also allow input for how long from x time to perform the action.
+ * make the os.manage work by running an Rscript, in order to allow for their use in long running of knitr/Sweave projects.
* Add a rate function for the package
* Add automatic check for a new R version every X time.
* a way to copy/move Rprofile.site from one installation to the next such as "C:\Program Files\R\R-2.15.2\etc\Rprofile.site" to "C:\Program Files\R\R-2.15.3\etc\Rprofile.site"? (requested by: Farrel Buchinsky)

+
+<h2>Introduction</h2>
+
+<p>The <em>installr</em> package offers a set of R functions for the installation and updating of software (currently, only on Windows OS), with a special focus on R itself. This package has two main goals:</p>
+
+<ol>
+<li>To make updating R (on windows) as easy as running a function.</li>
+<li>To make it as easy as possible to install all of the needed software for R development (such as git, RTools, etc), as well as for reproducible research using R (such as MikTeX, pandoc, etc).</li>
+</ol>
+
+<h2>Motivation</h2>
+
+<p>While for Linux users, the installation process of new software may be just running a short line of code, for the regular Windows user it often includes browsing online, finding the latest version, downloading it, running the installer, and deleting the installation file. All of these steps are automatically done using functions in this package.</p>
+
+<h2>Installation</h2>
+
+<p>To install the stable version on CRAN:</p>
+
+<pre><code class="r">install.packages(&#39;installr&#39;)
+</code></pre>
+
+<p>To install the GitHub version:</p>
+
+<pre><code class="r">if (!require(&#39;devtools&#39;)) install.packages(&#39;devtools&#39;)
+install_github(&#39;installr&#39;, &#39;talgalili&#39;)
+</code></pre>
+
+<h2>Usage</h2>
+
+<p>If you are using the Rgui, you will see a new menu added on your top right (just by &ldquo;help&rdquo;), giving you the option to update R, or install new software.</p>
+
+<p>For command line use you can <strong>update R</strong> by running:</p>
+
+<pre><code class="r">require(installr)
+updateR() # this will open dialog boxes to take you through the steps.
+</code></pre>
+
+<p>Or <strong>install a new software</strong> simply by running:</p>
+
+<pre><code class="r">require(installr)
+installr() # user can easily select (via a GUI interface) a software to install.
+</code></pre>

+<li>updateR() - serves as a &ldquo;check for updates&rdquo; function of R itself. Running the function will check for a newer version of R than the one currently used. If one exists, the function will download the most updated R version and run its installer. Once done, the function will offer to copy (or move) all of the packages from the old R library to the new R library. It will then offer to update the moved packages, offer to open the new Rgui, and lastely, it will quit the old R.</li>
