Hello Dana, I am encountering a similar problem with the DESTROY function in RSperl. I get the following error on calling it from with my perl code. " Error: could not find function "DESTROY" Caught error in R::call() " In case you were able to figure it out, could you please let me know? Thanks -Rachana

    Hi Rachana --

    I haven't found a solution but I ran into another problem (UGH). I've installed RSPerl on a new system and using an old script for testing I get the following error:

    Can't locate package RFunctionReference for @RReferences::ISA...

    Works fine on other systems. I have written to the author but I didn't hear anything when I wrote about the DESTROY routine so I hope I hear something on this one.

    Good luck.


      I think RSPerl is b0rken as of now (2008-06-17, version 0.92-1).

      There are a couple of things like an extraneous =cut tag mixed in with POD which disables a bunch of code in the RReferences module. It was definitely in an incomplete state when released.

      I haven't been in contact with the authors yet, but it seems to me like their priority is providing access to Perl from within R, and not vice-versa.

      Can anyone help me to access the lm method of R using Perl through RSPerl???
