Subject: Problems with Hmisc-library

Dear Splus users,

I have the following problem concerning the installation (or use) of the
'hmisc'-library (from the
S/Dos Windows section
of statlib). I'm using Splus 3.1 for windows.

After unzipping the file in the library section of the spluswin
directory and
loading the autolib.s file into Splus (after adjusting the directory name for
spluswin as:
assign('.First.local',function() {invisible(library(hmisc,T))},

I received the following error message:

>Error in .First.lib(lib.loc, section): couldn't find function ""
In addition: Warning messages:
[.factor redefined to drop unused levels of factor variables when
To prevent this behaviour, issue the command options(drop.factor.levels=F). in:
.First.lib(lib.loc, section)

Maybe this might be trivial, but I don't have any idea what to do...

Thanks in advance,

Martin Sieger.
