Pre-madebinaries are made available for some systems with varying regularity andcan be obtained from CRAN (see the RESOURCES file).The main source of information on installation is the `R Installationand Administration Manual', an HTML copy of which is available as file`doc/html/R-admin.html'. Please read that before installing R. Butif you are impatient, read on but please refer to the manual toresolve any problems. (If you obtained R using Subversion, the manualis at doc/manual/R-admin.texi.)SIMPLE COMPILATIONAs you are reading this file, you have unpacked the R sources and arepresumably in the top directory. Issue the following commands: ./configure make(If your make is not called `make', set the environment variable MAKE toits name, and use that name throughout these instructions.)This will take a while, giving you time to read `R-admin.html'.Then check the built system worked correctly, by make checkand make the manuals by (as many options as preferred from) make dvi to create DVI versions make pdf to create PDF versions make info to create info filesHowever, please read the notes in `R-admin.html' about making thereference manual.INSTALLATIONYou do not need to install R to run it: you can run R by the script`bin/R' which you can link or copy to any convenient place in your path.For a site-wide installation, use make install make install-dvi make install-info make install-pdfchoosing to install the manuals that you made.This installs to the default location (typically `/usr/local') for yourplatform: see the Installation and Administration Manual for other options.
