HowTo access a ﬁle repository. This article demonstrates how you can make use of the reposTools package available in the Bioconductor project to quickly and easily access, download and install ﬁles stored in R repositories. This package provides a set of interactive tools to communicate with R repositories as well as tools to handle automatic library management. An R ﬁle repository is a set of packages, vignettes, or other data that can be accessed interactively. Users can obtain automatic updates of packages, data and other R related resources. The reposTools package allows users to easily locate and communicate with R repositories, and download/update/install the available objects on the remote repository to the local system with attention paid to dependencies, platform, version, etc. A key aspect for this package is automatic library management for the user’s R installation, which is the focus of this article.
