WinGrass + R's installation path in %PATH%

Reported by: hellik Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 6.4.0
Component: Packaging Version: svn-releasebranch64
Keywords: wingrass, R Cc:
CPU: Unspecified Platform: MSWindows Vista

Description

I have installed the WinGrass64-installer and R 2.11.1 on my WinVista32-box.

the wingrass-installer delivers a command line.

in the command line during a Grass-session you can change to the installation folder of R and then you are able to start R inside a Grass-session.

it would be nice to have the R's installation path in %PATH%, so you can start R directly in the WinGrass-delivered command line.

From the R-Windows-FAQ: (http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/rw-FAQ.html#Does-R-use-the-Registry_003f)

"Does R use the Registry?" => this would maybe a starting point maybe something for 6.4.1?

best regards Helmut

patches added for Grass64, Grass65, Grass7.

this improves the Grass+R-integration on Windows (in the case R is installed before a grass-installation).

any comments? Helmut

Looks like a harmless improvement to me which will help the GRASS-R users a lot.

+1 for adding to SVN.

done for trunk (r42740) and grass65 (r42742) in a slightly different way.
