Is anyone aware of an ebuild for gnu r? It's hard to search for since the program name is only one letter long, but I haven't been able to come up with anything yet.

Try "emerge R".

As a useful tip, the input to emerge -s is a regular expression so you can specify that it should only contain r by "emerge -s ^r$".

Oh, sweet. I never realized emerge -s could take regexps.

Thanks.

From http://www.r-project.org/ :-
The R environment

R is an integrated suite of software facilities for data manipulation, calculation and graphical display. It includes

* an effective data handling and storage facility,
* a suite of operators for calculations on arrays, in particular matrices,
* a large, coherent, integrated collection of intermediate tools for data analysis,
* graphical facilities for data analysis and display either on-screen or on hardcopy, and
* a well-developed, simple and effective programming language which includes conditionals, loops, user-defined recursive functions and input and output facilities.

More simply, a superb statistical analysis and graphics generation environment.

No longer works.

Why the hell is this still hidden where no one would think to look?!
:roll:

Since the developers call it R-project http://www.r-project.org

... gentoo devs decided to calls it R, which is so short as to be useless.

Since it a scientific package and stats is a branch of mathematics, gentoo devs decided to put it in dev-lang.

:roll: :roll:

But,
Code:
ceres ~ # emerge -s %^R$

ceres ~ #
does. These days, if you want a regex search, you have to prepend a "%" and the regex search is case sensitive.

Still, I tend to agree. Way too well hidden.

But this is really an R problem. They may call their website "r-project",
but the user community calls the system "R", and this is what everybody
who looks for the package will type. Searching for "r-project" or "gnu-r"
or whatever would not be any more obvious than "^R$".

The only thing that could really improve the situation is if emerge
prominently pointed out exact matches in addition to the partial ones.
(Although the number of packages where this is an issue is rather small.)

Hi,

for all of the folks who uses eix, which is my preferred tool for such kind of tasks,
its easy to find only this package with:
eix -e R

eix -e R

Finding R in portage is the least difficult thing - try googling something connected with R. I do it daily and sometimes it's really a pain.
Similar thing happens with Awesome WM, by the way.

Ah. I get caught by this from time to time. Sorry. You must be running stable Portage. I'm running 2.2* (as Gentree must be) which is where the case sensitivity must've been added.

Gentoo devs generally name the packages the same way the download is called.

So, .../src/base/R-2/R-2.12.2.tar.gz -> dev-lang/R-2.12.2

So the blame is mostly on the R devs ;)
