Install a package from a SVN repository

This function requires svn to be installed on your system in order to be used.

Usage
install_svn(url, subdir = NULL, args = character(0), revision = NULL,
  dependencies = NA, upgrade = c("ask", "always", "never"),
  force = FALSE, quiet = FALSE, build = TRUE,
  build_opts = c("--no-resave-data", "--no-manual",
  "--no-build-vignettes"), repos = getOption("repos"),
  type = getOption("pkgType"), ...)
Arguments
url

Location of package. The url should point to a public or private repository.

subdir

A sub-directory withing a svn repository that contains the package we are interested in installing.

args

A character vector providing extra options to pass on to svn.

revision

svn revision, if omitted updates to latest

dependencies

Which dependencies do you want to check? Can be a character vector (selecting from "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", or "Enhances"), or a logical vector.

TRUE is shorthand for "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo" and "Suggests". NA is shorthand for "Depends", "Imports" and "LinkingTo" and is the default. FALSE is shorthand for no dependencies (i.e. just check this package, not its dependencies).

upgrade

One of "ask", "always" or "never". "ask" prompts the user for which out of date packages to upgrade. For non-interactive sessions "ask" is equivalent to "always". TRUE and FALSE are also accepted and correspond to "always" and "never" respectively.

force

Force installation, even if the remote state has not changed since the previous install.

quiet

If TRUE, suppress output.

build

If TRUE build the package before installing.

build_opts

Options to pass to R CMD build, only used when build is TRUE.

repos

A character vector giving repositories to use.

type

Type of package to update.

...

Other arguments passed on to utils::install.packages().

Details

It is vectorised so you can install multiple packages with a single command.
