Remove Add-on Packages


Utility for removing add-on packages.


R CMD REMOVE [options] [-l lib] pkgs


pkgs a list with the names of the packages to be removed.
lib the path name of the R library tree to remove from. May be absolute or relative.
options further options.


If used as R CMD REMOVE pkgs without explicitly specifying lib, packages are removed from the library tree rooted at the first directory in the library path which would be used by R run in the current environment.

To remove from the library tree lib, use R CMD REMOVE -l lib pkgs.

Use R CMD REMOVE --help for more usage information.


Some binary distributions of R have INSTALL in a separate bundle, e.g. an R-devel RPM.
