thank you, i saw this entry. However, this entry is rather
about how to include documents (in particular Sweave-based)
into a package. But I have meant smth else.
Let me explain in example. Today I use emacs as
environment for my R-sessions. I am quite happy to
use Sweave, but not happy, that there is no good
possibility to run some selected *part* of the R-code.
Indeed, the R-chunks are alternated with
Latex-chunks in Sweave. So, if one would like to
execute, say, three consequent R-chunks (C-c C-r in ESS-mode),
then the corresponding Latex-chunks between the
R-chunks will cause "side-effects". Actually, it is
because neither ESS nor R could accept Latex-chunks
and the markup symbols of Sweave. This makes interactive
work in .Rnw files not fully convenient.
Making the above short: would it be a bad idea to
allow Latex-friendly documentation chunks in
P.S. I am sorry if i missed something well-known
concerning the subj.
