Developers' Information

To compile igraph from source and produce a compressed archive suitable for installing into R:

Download the source distribution from launchpad

From the main directory:
cd interfaces/R

Then install into R by issuing:
R CMD INSTALL igraph_0.4.tar.gz (or whatever the name is of the tar.gz file that was produced in the last step.)

(It may however be important to remove a previous installation, which you can do via the R command remove.packages("igraph").)

These commands worked for version 0.4 (2007-04-19), but they were most recently checked with version 0.5.4 (2010-09-22). Original source:
