There is no clean solution, if you are going to do
in R, I think.

But you can convert .Rd files to formatted help pages with 
  Rcmd Rdconv ....
if you are going to view the help file by, e.g., double-clicking it.

For help see the R Extension Writers' manual and    Rcmd Rdconv --help .
I'd suggest to build a package -- for sure, some more of your functions
are worth to be commented soon.
