In R, I have to install packages manually because my wretched prevents R from accessing the online repository. Instead, I download and uncompress the package binaries to a directory on my hard drive and load them one by one into R using library(Package.Name, lib.loc = "Directory.Path"). This is a not a crippling problem but it is a nuisance. Some packages have dependencies - they call functions from other packages to run. Does the order I manually load the packages and their dependencies into R matter?

    Order of dependencies matters. You need to import the dependency before the library that requires it.

    Thanks! I've been figuring that out over the past few days.
