Installation Instructions

  • Current version (from CRAN):

    install.packages("mboost")
    
  • Latest patch version (patched version of CRAN package; under development) from GitHub:

    library("devtools")
    install_github("boost-R/mboost")
    library("mboost")
    
  • Latest development version (version with new features; under development) from GitHub:

    library("devtools")
    install_github("boost-R/mboost", ref = "devel")
    library("mboost")
    

    To be able to use the install_github() command, one needs to install devtools first:

    install.packages("devtools")
