> http://bioinf.wehi.edu.au/limmaGUI/ Yes, we are developing limmaGUI, a Tcl/Tk interface for the limma package. If anyone is game to try it out at this early stage, I'd love to hear feedback. But it certainly doesn't have all of the power of the limma package (for command-line users) and may contain some significant bugs. I have found that the hardest part of providing an easy-to-use R/TclTk application is making it easy to install on all systems. ActiveTcl works well on Windows, but on Red Hat, R is configured by default to use the Tcl and Tk 8.3 shared libraries, whereas if you use ActiveTcl to get the Tcl/Tk extensions (Tktable, BWidge etc.) you end up with 8.4 binaries - could be risky. And on MacOS X you face the issue that X11 and Aqua Tcl/Tk are not compatible with each other so you have to make sure that you don't have both in the Tcl/Tk search path. Regards, James

You need to add tkrplot to the list of requirements for limmaGUI.
