Actually I've tried to install XML directly from CRAN. But it failed.
trying URL `http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/contrib/2.0/PACKAGES'
Content type `text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1' length 27110 bytes
No package "XML" on CRAN. in: download.packages(pkgs, destdir = tmpd,
available = available,
I also tried this:
Loading required package: tools
Note: You did not specify a download type. Using a default value of: Win32
This will be fine for almost all users
Unable to locate the requested package(s) in any known repository
As a lot of documentation and mailing responses suggest installing XML
directly from CRAN, it seems that the windows version of XML has ever
existed in CRAN repository, but later been removed (for copyright issues)?
