[R] Help required for Rcmdr

Dear Sekhar,

The Rcmdr package, including a Windows binary, *is* available for version 3.2.3 (the current version) of R, as you can verify from the CRAN webpage for the package, at <https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/Rcmdr/index.html>. My guess is that the CRAN mirror you're using has a problem, and you might try selecting a different mirror.

I hope that this help,

Dear Mr. Murdoch,
I am extremely sorry to have sent the mail to you instead of R-help. Thanks
for directing me.
I have downloaded R 3.2.3 version. After that i asked for
install.packages("Rcmdr") . It says that Rcmdr is not available with
version 3.2.3. On looking at the pdf file for getting started with R, i
found that i should download with SDI Graphical interface which I did once
again but still i could not get the Rcmdr console.
I attended a workshop where the faculty brought out the R console as well
as the R-commander console where i could import files and also do all the
statistics easily. I am not getting the R-commander console.
Shall be grateful if i could get help on getting the R-commander console
with the user friendly way of doing the statistical operations.
Thanks and regards,
Once again apologize to Dr. Duncan Murdoch for disturbing him.
