Installing LOCFIT, S-Plus 3.3, 4.0, 4.5 and 6.0 (Windows).

  1. Download the self-extracting zip file for Splus 3.3, Splus 4.0, 4.5, 2000 or Splus 6.0 as appropriate. Depending on your browser set-up, it may run automatically, or save to your Temp directory.
  2. Determine your SHOME directory. The defaults are
  3. Run the self-extracting zip file. You should get a WinZip self-extractor dialog box. The "UnZip to Folder" box should, if necessary, be changed to SHOME\library\locfit, where SHOME is as determined above. (S-Plus 4.0 and 4.5 users: changing this will be necessary).
  4. Click the unzip button. The files should be unzipped to the specified location. If errors occur, check again that the "UnZip to Folder" was correctly entered.
  5. (Optional) Add the line
    locfit        Local Regression, Likelihood and Density Estimation
    to the file SHOME\library\readme.txt.

S-Plus 6.0 Notes: This is the first windows version of locfit to incorporate the S-4 classes and methods. It also includes some (as yet undocumented) changes, most notably to the way evaluation structures are specified in locfit calls.

S-Plus 3.3 Notes: This is an old archive. I no longer have S-Plus 3.3 so can't update it. If you have the Watcom compiler I will be glad to send updated source...
