R packages from the Handbook
For using these packages you will need to install the R System for Statistics which is free software. The easiest way to use R is through scripts written in an IDE like RStudio (Linux, Windows, OS X), or an editor like Tinn-R (Windows only).
All these packages are written fully in S language, so are easy to install. On Windows systems use the .zip files, and on Linux or Unix (e.g. OS X) the .tar.gz ones. The packages have been tested under Windows 7 (i86 and x64) and Ubuntu.
Both source and built “binary” files are hosted at BitBucket at https://bitbucket.org/aphalo/uvcalc/downloads which is a public git repository. You can also contribute improvements to the package and report bugs through this link.
No further development of this package is planned. It will be replaced by a new suite of R packages for photobiology. Different packages in the suite are at different stages of development, but the already publicly released packages contain all the functionality of UVcalc, but with a hopefully better and more general user interface. Further information and download instructions are available at the Photobiology packages for R web site.
The source and built “binary” files are at https://bitbucket.org/aphalo/lamps/downloads which is a public git repository. You can also contribute improvements to the package and report bugs through this link.
