rspear is deprecated!

After being around for three years (here’s the release post), rspear is now deprecated.

rspear is out-of-date; development and maintenance has stopped. Functionality of functions and updates of traits cannot be guaranteed any more!

On CRAN the package will be archived and I also will keep the GitHub repository for future references.

Please use the new SPEAR Calculator available here, to calculate SPEAR.


  • Did anybody use rspear? - If so ping me on twitter, raise an issue on GitHub or send me an Email.
