Re: [igraph] What is minimum version of R that supports igraph?

Thanks, Alex,

I'll look into docker.  Two additional points, though, are that (a) I don't 
have admin privs on that machine (and frankly there's no reason I ought to need 
them to accomplish this), so sudo is out, and (b) I have no need to use R 
GUI-interactively on that machine (which I presume is RStudio's main benefit).

Basically what I have is a node on (something like) a compute cluster, and I'm 
trying to install igraph (on that machine) because I am trying to use a non-R 
bioinformatics tool that launches a non-shell instance of R (I guess that's the 
right term -- an instance that doesn't accept input from the user) to run an R 
script, and that script needs igraph.  I'm not even certain that the 
bioinformatics tool will solve the problem I want to give it (the tool's 
published manuscript is not clear), so I am just trying to evaluate that.  
Because of that, I'm trying to avoid installing anything beyond what's 
necessary to "just get it working" until I find out whether the working version 
has any value to me.

Thanks again,
Bob H
