Installing Release 4.0 of the USGS Library:

1. Stop S-PLUS if it is running.
2. If you are upgrading from a previous version of the USGS Library, delete the S_HOME\local\library\USGS directory. This is typically \Program Files\TIBCO\splus81\local\library\USGS.
3. Download USGS-4.0.zip (size 3,262 KB).
4. In some directory (e.g. C:\Temp), unzip USGS-4.0.zip. This creates a directory called USGS which contains a dozen or so files and a .Data directory.
5. Copy the entire USGS directory to S_HOME\local\library\USGS, which is typically C:\Program Files\TIBCO\splus81\local\library\USGS.
6. From the USGS directory, move the file S.init into \Program Files\TIBCO\splus81\local or equivalent. This forces the automatic loading of the USGS library (functions, dialogs, datasets, and Help) when S-PLUS is started.
