dependencies of the package from CRAN, if they're not already installed.

The package to use, can be a file path to the package or a

Which dependencies do you want to check? Can be a character vector (selecting from "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", or "Enhances"), or a logical vector.
