Setting Up R Preferences with .Rprofile
For your convenience, a sample ~/.Rprofile example file is provided that can be downloaded to your cluster account and renamed into
~/.Rprofile (or appended to one). Follow these steps to download our recommended
~/.Rprofile example and copy it into place:
curl -#LO https://www.rcac.purdue.edu/files/knowledge/run/examples/apps/r/Rprofile_example mv -ib Rprofile_example ~/.Rprofile
The above installation step needs to be done only once on Bell. Now load the R module and run R:
module load r/4.1.2 R
.libPaths()  "/home/myusername/R/bell/4.1.2-gcc-6.3.0-ymdumss"  "/apps/spack/bell/apps/r/4.1.2-gcc-6.3.0-ymdumss/rlib/R/library"
.libPaths() should output something similar to above if it is set up correctly.
You are now ready to install R packages into the dedicated directory
