This is the Debian GNU/Linux r-cran-vr package of VR, a collection of
functions and datasets by William N. Venables and Brian D. Ripley.

This package was created by Dirk Eddelbuettel <edd@debian.org>.
The sources were downloaded from 
	http://cran.us.r-project.org/src/contrib/
and are also included in the (large) source tar archive of R itself at
	http://cran.us.r-project.org/src/base/

The package was renamed from its upstream name 'VR' to 'r-cran-vr' to
fit the pattern of CRAN (and non-CRAN) packages for R.

VR is copyright William N. Venables and Brian D. Ripley and released
under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

On a Debian GNU/Linux system, the GPL license is included in the file
/usr/share/common-licenses/GPL.
