However, I get the following error message (I have R version 3.0.1):
> library(shRNAseq) Error: package ‘shRNAseq’ was built before R 3.0.0: please re-install it
Perhaps it would be more appropriate to contact the developer about this, but I suspect that the issue at hand is more general than just for this particular case: what is the best follow-up step if a package is designed for an earlier version of R, and you need the newer version for all your other stuff? Would you in fact install an older version of R for the purpose of running this package, and then switch back and forth between the versions? Seems quite cumbersome, but I'm not quite seeing any alternative way of solving this issue.
