I'm new to the site and I'm trying to get some information out of the site. I need to be able to analyze the package lists but I can't seem to import them into Excel for analysis. Was this done intentionally?

Problem 1:

https://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/

Problem 2:

https://bioconductor.org/packages/release/BiocViews.html#___Software

Problem 3: is this "Stat" feature live or still in development?

Problem 4: Can you make this site more friendly for images? When I have problems I need to get them fixed. Pictures are worth a thousand words and I wasted 1 hour doing this cutting and pasting stuff today.

Have you tried my suggestion? It won't give you any browser errors because it does not involve the use of a browser.

Most things are more easily done in R than by scraping web pages.

source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
x <- available.packages(contrib.url(biocinstallRepos()['BioCsoft']))
write.csv(x, file="x.csv")

Then read in x.csv in excel.

Hi Dan,

I've download it but it's a zipped package so I need to look at it. I'm in the middle something so I can't respond until later today.
