Hi Min-Han:

Is that enough? I thought you need 'makecdfenv' to create a package (or 
an environment) from the CDF file.

This package has two functions. One reads a Affymetrix chip description 
file (CDF) and creates a hash table environment containing the 
location/probe set membership mapping. The other creates a package that 
automatically loads that environment.

But then I am not sure in this particular case.
