I have the same question as there : CRImage createTrainingSet package is not available to install

...but no clue of the answer. 

I have used lsf.str("package:CRImage") and I can see that createTrainingSet function is not listed.

*edit : I have downloaded the source and there are no createTrainingSet.R script... That might explain why...

Thanks for any help!

Error in createTrainingSet(filename = f, maxShape = 800, minShape = 40,  : 
  could not find function "createTrainingSet"

As needed, the output of sessionInfo() :

Yes, it seems that function is missing from CRImage and the example line in the manual is simply text - it's never run or checked to see if it works. It looks like it was removed a long time ago, but you can still find it in the source code for this version of the package (, but I presume it was removed for a reason....

Hi Mike!

Yes I agree with you, and with my first try of the older package, createTrainingSet() is calling to 'hullFeatures' and cannot find it. A quick search on it showed that it is a deprecated function of EBImage, and has been replaced by computeFeatures.shape().
So yes, there is a reason it is not anymore included, I guess. I contacted the authors as well if they answer I will follow up here.
