Description

R is great for installing software. Through the 'installr' package you can automate the updating of R (on Windows, using updateR()) and install new software. Software installation is initiated through a GUI (just run installr()), or through functions such as: install.Rtools(), install.pandoc(), install.git(), and many more. The updateR() command performs the following: finding the latest R version, downloading it, running the installer, deleting the installation file, copy and updating old packages to the new R installation.
