Dear all,

I'm puzzled by the error I get from R CMD check one of my packages. I'm running R CMD check with the --as-cran flag and it get the error both from running it from the command line as from within Rstudio. On the same machine R CMD check on my GRTS package (https://r-forge.r-project.org/R/?group_id=1027) works fine.

Any suggestions on how to fix this? I can send the source code in a private email if required.

Best regards,
