Alternative of packages


It seems that the following packages are either changed or decommissioned. What are the alternative packages to replace them? And will the alternatives affect any functionality?

  1. gbm
  2. rodbc
  3. randomForest
  4. rms

Are you sure you really mean randomforest ?
Because there is a package randomForest .
Just asking ...

Yes, it's randomForest

Can you please clarify what you mean by "changed or decommissioned"? You are mentioning packages that are still on CRAN and most likely they have received updates but it is not clear what is your actual problem with them.

These are not available in the Recent version of the R studio. So, there must be some upgraded versions of these or a completely new package itself?

RStudio is an IDE for the R programming language, it doesn't come with any R packages. You get the base R packages with your R installation and then you install the ones you need from CRAN, github or other sources.

Several of the packages you are mentioning are available in CRAN so if you have problems installing them, then post the specific error message you get so we can take a look and help you.

As @ andresrcs says.

In some cases it may be possible to go to the developer's github account and install from there.
