Hi, 

We are planning to integrate R into our Java web app. We have issues with trying to setup lubridate package that our R code depends on. 
Is there consistent way (even using older versions or Renjin or lubridate) to successfully load lubridate package?

Thanks.

I looked briefly at it and it seems the gcc bridge has some problems making sense of the Fortran code. I did not find any of the older versions of lubridate being more promising.

Are you willing to do some work to get this working? There are two options:

1. Create a renjin specific package of lubridate essentially replacing the fortran and/or c code that does not work.
2. Fix the gcc bridge so that it manages to convert the fortran/c code to byte code.

I am fine with either approach and would be happy help.

Best regards,
Per

I looked a bit closer, there is no fortran code, only c and c++. The problem is that the source requires g++-4.8 or later to build and the gcc bridge is using gcc 4.7.

We were on the verge of upgrading to gcc 4.8 but Alex reverted the patch. I dont know the reason but I guess he found some issues. Alex: do you remember what made you pull back the gcc 4.8 upgrade?

Regards,
Per
