[Rd] file.system() in packages

Rcpp is experimenting with a 'callback' scheme in vignettes.  

For this, Rcpp itself has an unexported function bib() defined as

    bib <- function() {
       sub("\\.bib$", "", system.file( "doc", "Rcpp.bib", package = "Rcpp" ) )

and packages depending on Rcpp can then do this in the vignette header:

    RcppBibfile <- sub("\\.bib$", "", Rcpp:::bib())

which gets used towards the end of the Rnw file as


I think so far only one package is using it.

Hth, Dirk
