I am trying to install NuChart from here:

ftp://fileserver.itb.cnr.it/nuchart/

and I get this message:

Error in install.packages : file ‘~/Downloads/NuChart_0.99.tgz’ is not an OS X binary package

I searched in the vignette:

ftp://fileserver.itb.cnr.it/nuchart/NuChart.pdf

and as far as I can say, there are no installation instructions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This support site is for helping people with Bioconductor packages. Although the paper describing this package says it is 'compliant with the Bioconductor standard', this is different from being a Bioconductor package. Your best bet is to contact the package developer directly.

Jim is right, this is not a Bioconductor package, therefore this is not the right place to ask about it. However, adding type="source" to your command ought to do the trick:

install.packages("~/Downloads/NuChart_0.99.tgz", repos=NULL, type="source")

Also you can install it from your OS X command line (Terminal.app) with:

R CMD INSTALL ~/Downloads/NuChart_0.99.tgz
