Sounds like there is an unrecognized character in there
somewhere (for example a curly quote rather than a straight quote).
Can you copy and paste the command into this discussion? What
operating system is this on and what version of R are you
Also how are you entering your commands into RStudio
(specifically this one that gave you an issue)? Are you simply
typing them all in by hand or do you also copy and paste some text
from other editors, websites, programs, etc. If so, what are
I am running Mac OS X 10.6.7 and R 2.12.1.
This happen completely randomly. Even if the command is typed
directly in the console. I will send you example when it happen
next time. I was wondering if someone other reported similar
problem. I went though the forum but I did not find anything.
Thanks for the update and and definitely let us know if it
happens again. We have seen this minimally, but it was always a
quick fix (copied unreadable characters from a web page, etc) For
example Wordpress uses curly quotes and coping code from there
resulted in some issue in our previous release. We have fixed all
of the related issues and now you just need to change from the
curly quote to normal ones.
I am sending you example of the error we talked last time. I wanted
to print all values from dataframe msd_two, variable condition. I
typed it directly in the console and I used tab to complete
variable name. And this does not work. I have to copy paste the
command from console into console and then it works. And it is
exactly the same command. Thanks for help.
What version of RStudio do you have? We might have actually
fixed this issue just recently. The latest on the website is
0.93.84 and you can download it from our main webpage: http://www.rstudio.org/download/desktop
Let me know what version you've got and then try upgrading if
you haven't already.
actually yesterday I found that the update mechanism does not work.
It told me all the time that I have the newest version, but I had
the old version. I downloaded the latest version and since then the
problem does not appear again.
Now I have version 0.93.83. Does the update in this version works
or do I have to check
on your site if new version is available?
Thanks a lot.
Great and glad to hear. The update mechanism actually works for
both version, but we specifically told it not to inform users yet.
We released, but didn't sent the notification of an update as we
wanted to work out a few bugs before having everyone install the
new version. We will actually be rolling this very soon to the
current version of which you just downloaded.
