Is there support for aroma.affymetrix under R 64 bit?

Definitely on Linux. Are you asking about Windows 64-bit? Then, I
think so, cf:

http://cran.r-project.org/web/checks/check_results_aroma.affymetrix.html

but I don't have machines to test it myself - someone out there with a
Win64 system that can test? You should also be aware of the 'Update 2
on MinGW-w64 builds for 64-bit Windows' (March 1, 2010) post on
R-devel:

I'm using March 1st 64bit version on Windows but for some reason
affxparser seems to be unavailable.

So affxparser is built by the Bioconductor framework. Please post to
the BioC mailing list and ask there - they should be able to tell what
the Win64 plans are.

Thanks will do.

So basically aroma.affymetrix package won't install until we figure
out the affparser issue?

Thanks

Look at

http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/aroma.affymetrix/

There you see that 'affxparser' is listed under "Depends:", which
means it is a required package (==you have to have required packages
installed before installing aroma.affymetrix). FYI, packages under
"Imports:" are also required. Packages under "Suggests:" are not
required.

Note that according to the information on (sent you this before and
available via the above URL):

http://cran.r-project.org/web/checks/check_results_aroma.affymetrix.html

the CRAN build/check servers, and especially
'r-devel-windows64-x86_64', can build/check the aroma.affymetrix
package (there is only a NOTE which is ok) on Win64. This implies
that they have a Win64 version of affxparser available. I don't know
where they got it from; that's why I ask you to post to BioC.
