# [ESS] noweb, Sweave, flyspell, terminating

Conditional evaluation is something that lots of people have thought
of -- think of being able to construct a generalized makefile
specification for an Sweave document.  But currently, that would
require a bit more work.

With respect to your other question, probably you want an R-mode-hook
to turn off flyspell, and a LaTeXmode-hook to turn it back on.

(or need to edit the "possible words to check list", which I think
ispell and flyspell have, to avoid variable names and non-valid (from
spelling perspective) reserved words, among others).

I have tried inserting "\end{document}" but that is ignored by Sweave as far as I can see.  Since R and LaTeX need different comment styles, it's not so easy to comment out sections of code and documentation simultaneously.   It is possible to make a second smaller document, sure, and I have done that.  The problem with that is then one of version control (of the R workspace): it was trying to avoid these problems that made me start using noweb (which is brilliant - thank you , thank you, thank you!).  What might be nice would be conditional execution of chunks (or - can't believe I am about to write this - a GO TO chunk-label)?

What is more irritating is that the doc/code distinction is removed after this happens.  By that I mean that doc chunks are not recognised as such so the menus and font-locks for new text in the doc chunks are not available.  Closing and re-opening and not turning on flyspell fixes it, but it is an annoying little glitch.
