The problem was solved. Now, the splits is available for download from the R-forge.
The R-forge site for the splits is now experiencing a problem of package building. Both source files and the binary package are not available for download. The install.packages command described in “how to install” do not work either. It is unclear when this problem is solved.
I put the source code and package file on Github for now.
This is only for temporary download. I have not decided whether the package will be hosted on Github or not.
If you are not familiar with how to use Git, a simple way to install package is following:
0) Make sure you installed the latest R and dependency packages.
1) Click the “Download ZIP” button at the bottom right to download the zipped files.
2) Decompress “splits_1.0-19.tar.gz” from the downloaded zip file.
3) Call install.pacakges on your R console to install from the local file.
