Bigreg is not installing

I want to use data_matrix function from bigReg package, but I don't see this package in available packages.
I use R3.6.3 and this package requires R (>= 3.2.0).

How can I install this package? I wonder if this package has been deleted?
I have windows 10. Does it may be problem?

The package is available on CRAN, do you get any error message when you try to install it with this command?


I get following error:
Warning in install.packages : package ‘bigReg’ is not available (for R version 3.6.3).

But, I think windows does not support this package (see picture)

Yes, you are right, it does not support Windows systems

It probably won't function on windows since multi-core processing is done using mclapply() which forks R on Unix/Linux type operating systems.

You could use it on Windows Subsystem for Linux WSL2 if you don't have a Mac or Linux machine at hand.
