If you run


do you get an error? If not, you can ignore the warning about Rtools.

no errors with library

-- Attaching packages ------------------------------------------------ tidyverse 1.3.2 --

can I complete codes without installing any packages?

Thanks for replying , I appreciate

You did install the tidyverse packages. Since using library(tidyverse) works, you can use the packages.

I do not know what caused the warning about Rtools but a warning is not fatal to the installation process. An error is fatal.

Thank you, it is very useful
