NCStats Rforge.net Custom Installation

Note that NCStats now depends on R 3.0.0 or greater. If you are using less than R 3.0.0 then you will need to upgrade (see the r-project site).

NCStats depends on several R packages being installed on your system. As this package is not distributed from CRAN you must install these packages manually. A simple way to do this is to copy the code below (the source() command) and paste it into the R console. Note that if you have not previously identified a CRAN mirror then you will be prompted to do so. At times this prompt may be 'buried' under other open windows; thus, you should be on the lookout for this prompt (in Windows keep an eye on your taskbar).

source("http://www.rforge.net/NCStats/InstallNCStats.R")

You should get no errors following the previous code. However, you can type the following two lines of code into R to see if "things" are working properly.

library(NCStats)
?NCStats

Note About Using Macs

The NCStats package uses TCL/TK for some interactive plots. Some Mac users report problems with using TCL/TK. While I am not a Mac user, nor do I have access to a Mac to test these issues, I have had some students report success installing the tcltk universal build located here (direct link to the file). You may have to re-install the NCStats package using the source() line above after installing this file.
