installDataPackage {annotate}R Documentation

A function to install data packages from the Internet

Description

This function is deprecated. Use R's build-in install.packages function instead.

This function can be used to easily download and install a data package from the Bioconductor website.

Usage

installDataPackage(pkga, liba = .libPaths()[1])

Arguments

pkga The name of the desired data package
liba The install library, defaulting to the base library

Details

installDataPackage uses the reposTools package to perform the actual download and install - this function is mainly just a simplified wrapper for install.packages2. It connects to the data package repository at http://www.bioconductor.org/data/dataRepos, and attempts to get the requested package.
