I've recently been having problems with compiling packages for R. I'm not sure of the causes but one possibility is that there are a couple of different versions of gcc on my MacBook Pro. When I type
which gcc in a terminal window it returns
/usr/bin/gcc. But when I type gcc --version I get back
Configured with: --prefix=/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr --with-gxx-include-dir=/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Platforms/MacOSX.platform/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX.sdk/usr/include/c++/4.2.1 Apple clang version 11.0.3 (clang-1126.96.36.199) Target: x86_64-apple-darwin19.5.0 Thread model: posix InstalledDir: /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin
I may also have some issues with the path. It is currently set to
I added the Applications... path to PATH hoping it would help but it didn't. /usr/bin contains both a g++ and gcc file install May 18, so very recently. I've tried renaming those as a test of whether that would solve the problem but I'm unable to do that even as sudo.
Suggestions greatly appreciated!
