[Rd] Next release of R, August 31st
Tue, 07 Aug 2001 09:17:52 -0400
A problem I have had for some versions now: When using R html help,
different browsers are started on different machines. On one machine, it
starts the opera browser, where html search not functions. On my home
machine (with a new version of win98), it insists on starting M$
explorer, even though netscape is defined as default (when cliking on
the relevant help files in "explorador de windows", netscape opens). On
another machine, we have two different versions of netscape installed
(4.7 and 6.?, ?), and R insist on using the old version. Would
there be a good idea to define browser as an option(), so the exact
location of the .exe can be defined?
