[R-pkg-devel] Finding UTF character in .RData file

Hi All:

The recent nighty CRAN checks on one of my packages reports:

Check: data for non-ASCII characters 
Result: NOTE 
     Note: found 1 marked UTF-8 string 

When  originally submitted this was not the case.  All my data files are .RData files,  and even more so most are binary data.  If they were text files I could readily scan for UTF,  is there a way once I read the data into R to do a similar scan from within R.  I just ran the most recent  (Github) version of devtools::check() and it doesn't report an error.  Or is there a way I can get more specific information from the CRAN nightly build or Rhub or the like?
