[Bioc-devel] Question about package development

To whom it may concern,

I am Ghiwa a research assistant at Dr.Pierre Khoeuiry bioinformatic's lab at the American University of Beirut.

We are currently building our package and we have a question, we hope you can help us with.

While writing the documentation for the function(.Rd file) the examples section is mandatory, but our function uses

chrom.sizes and chain files which should be user provided.

How can we address this while writing the example? Should we include a chrom.sizes file and a chain file in the inst folder
to allow the example to run? And the disadvantage of that would be that the package would be large since the chain file is a large file.

Any recommendations?

Thank you.
