hi everyone,

install.packages("sos", method="wget")

Is "BiocManager" capable of something like that? Or any other way, excluding creation of local mirror for that, to get packages?

many thanks, L.

I believe that yes, the methods supported by download.file() are passed through from BiocManager::install() through to install.packages() and download.file(). So in short BiocManager::install("sos", method = "wget") should work!
