Typically the export of all your roxygen entries in the folder pkgname
is done by executing 'R CMD roxygen -d pkgname' and not done on a
file-per-file basis. You can however get single files too, by calling
C-u C-c C-e C-r the preview is placed in a buffer associated with a file
with a suitable name. Just save it where you want it.
