Dear everybody:

HDF5, a dataset formatting library, and R that is built with it, have
been uploaded to ftp://ftp-fis.iarc.fr/pub/incoming.  The R RPM uses the
spec file created by Martyn Plummer as a starting point, and makes only
a few trivial changes.

To the best of my knowledge, these RPMs work perfectly well. I've
installed R and run the demo programs, no problems.  I'm not an
experienced R user, so I can't say I have done much more with them than
that.  If there is something wrong, I'd be glad to know.

The HDF5 RPM provides their version "1.2.0 beta1 release 2", which
appears very stable and workable. As soon as I hear NCSA releases a
final version of 1.2, I will announce an RPM for it.

If you care to try them out, you can also get the RPMS here.


These RPMs are in my Swarm directory because they are offered in support
of the Swarm user community. We are using R as a "front end" for the
creation of HDF5 formatted datasets, which can then be read by the Swarm
library during simulations.
