[R-pkg-devel] Macros in Rd files.

I tried to define a macro to produce today's date (like unto the 
"\today" command in LaTeX):


I put this into my *.Rd file just before invoking it.  (Something like
"I don't think I will do any more work today (i.e. \today).")

When I did

     R CMD build ldEst

to my package I got the warning:

> Warning: /tmp/RtmpL6sNnQ/Rbuild7f3036693218/ldEst/man/sampleCiLength.Rd:95:
> unexpected END_OF_INPUT '\keyword{ datagen }

Clearly I'm stuffing something up.  Can some kind soul please provide me 
with guidance as to what I *should* be doing?
