On current R (>= 3.0.0)

  • Development version from Github:
library("devtools"); install_github("BavoDC/actuaRE", dependencies = TRUE, build_vignettes = TRUE)

(This requires devtools >= 1.6.1, and installs the “master” (development) branch.) This approach builds the package from source, i.e. make and compilers must be installed on your system – see the R FAQ for your operating system; you may also need to install dependencies manually. Specify build_vignettes=FALSE if you have trouble because your system is missing some of the LaTeX/texi2dvi tools.


The basic functionality of the package is explained and demonstrated in the vignette, which you can access using


or via the homepage of the package.
