Nothing special -- just a few simple wrappers (generally written using
littler's r as I tend to live on Linux, should work from Rscript too) which I
call from shell: build.r to build, check.r to check, rcc.r to run (Gabor's
nice) rcmdcheck around the tarball (or directory or ...), install.r and
install2.r, update.r and so on. They are in the inst/examples/ directory of
source littler (and hence examples/ of installed littler).

The rule is that they are mostly skinny wrapper around the same functions R
uses when your call R CMD build or R CMD check, but saving me a few
keystrokes each time ... and cooperating better with TAB completion in bash.

So nothing magic.  Sorry :)


PS It would be nice if R Core exported these functions:
   for us to use from packages.
