Dear Emma,

you might want to follow the posting guide next time you write on the mailing list (see -> http://www.bioconductor.org/help/mailing-list/posting-guide/ ).

As the command you are trying to use is from a deprecated package, namely exonmap, it will likely not be valid in xmapcore (it is not, in fact).

You may read the vignettes and reference manual from the package to learn how to use it for your purposes:


Good luck with your Bioconductor's experience.

Dear All,
I have recently started (trying) to use xmapcore for analysis of my mouse Exon 1.0 array data. Now that the install is complete, I am having trouble with the first (!) command:

Connected to xmapcore_mus_musculus_58 (red0010)
Selected array 'MoEx-1_0' as a default.
> raw.data<-read.exon()
Error: could not find function "read.exon"

Since the example scripts I have managed to find are from the deprecated version, exonmap, I'm wondering if this command has changed?
Sorry for such a basic question. All help gratefully received.
