Install package Rtexttools

Hello everyone,

I have been trying to install the package Rtexttools, but it has been removed from CRAN. I tried downloading the previous versions from the archive, but with every try I get the following error:

ERROR: dependencies 'tree', 'ipred', 'maxent', 'glmnet', 'tau' are not available for package 'RTextTools'

  • removing 'C:/Users/Gebruiker/Documents/R/win-library/3.6/RTextTools'
    Warning in install.packages :
    installation of package ‘C:/Users/Gebruiker/Downloads/RTextTools_1.4.2.tar.gz’ had non-zero exit status

Can someone help me?

It appears that you have to build this one from the GitHub page, at

where the instructions state

INSTALLATION

RTextTools requires R 2.15+, which can be downloaded at http://www.r-project.org/. To build and install RTextTools, run the following commands while in the root folder:

R CMD REMOVE RTextTools
R CMD BUILD RTextTools
R CMD INSTALL RTextTools_X.X.X.tar.gz (where the X's should be replaced with the version number -- e.g. 1.4.0)

Hi, I installed R 2.15+ version.

Thank u for the reply. I was wondering how to execute the commands?

It's my first time using R
