I'm trying to debug why I'm suddenly getting the error
tar.exe: Error exit delayed from previous errors.
install_github, after updating to Windows 10 2004. Thinking there might be a problem with the
tar program, I came across this oddity:
> Sys.getenv("PATH")  "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft SDKs\\Azure\\CLI2\\wbin;C:\\Rtools\\bin; C:\\Windows\\system32;[...]" > Sys.which("tar") tar "C:\\WINDOWS\\SYSTEM32\\tar.exe" > file.exists("C:\\Rtools\\bin\\tar.exe")  TRUE
Why is R using the system
tar, as opposed to the Rtools-supplied
tar, when the Rtools directory is earlier in the path?
OS is Windows 10 2004 (build 19041.330), R 4.0.0.
