Q&A Order book R package for ultimate historical backtesting simulation?

This was from an R blog visitor  

Hi! Im trying to get access to the R package “orderbook” (which is not on CRAN), any idea how to get hold on this?

 

This is an old but look really good. I would refer to these helpful URLs:

Older download links where you need to manually install the zip through your RStudio:

http://cran.r-project.org/src/contrib/Archive/orderbook/

 

I also found this which may help:
