When I run the shell command
R CMD BUILD mypackage
the builder converts *.R files to *.rda data files. This seems to
conflict with the information in R-Exts which says a package's /data
directory can contain foo.R files which the function data() will call
source() to execute.
In my case, I have a foo.R file in the /data directory which contains
the following (adapted for size and clarity:
# some comment text
dataA <- '3.1415'
# more comments
dataB <- '2.71828'
The builder converted foo.R to foo.rda, and when I use either data() or
load() all I get is a char vector containing the text
Where did I go wrong?
