[BioC] CDF package needed for Barley chip

In order to create this cdfenv, you will need to peruse the instructions
for building packages under windows (I have to assume you are on win32),
which can be found in the R for Windows FAQ, question 3.1.

Although relatively straightforward to do, getting your win32 box set
up for compiling packages can be a frustrating experience. If you choose
to do so, make sure you follow the instructions on Brian Ripley's site
EXACTLY. The instructions are terse, but everything you need to know is

You will need to compile makecdfenv because there isn't a compiled
package yet, and once you have made the cdfenv, you will need to run
RCMD INSTALL to install it. This could easily take a while for you to do
if you are not well versed with computers, so in the interim I am
sending you the envs directly. However, I would highly recommend you
take the time to be able to compile your own packages. It has made my
life much easier.

BioCore: I can contribute the envs if there is an interest.

Dear all,

Does anyone have a CDF package of the Barley1 Chip for R for Windows?
Or can
someone please create one or help me creating one. The original CDF
file can
be obtained at

or from me.
