... by using R CMD build --resave-data
But I *did* use that flag with my build command!!! And yet "R CMD
check" seems to think that I didn't!
I have done "R CMD build --resave-data kanova" (where "kanova" is
the name of the package in question), to make sure that I didn't
fumble-finger somewhere, but there's no change. I always get that
How on earth can I track down what's going wrong?
There is only one file "stomata.rda" in kanova/data. The
file was created using:
The file stomata.rda is a *bit* on the large size; 285607 bytes
according to "ls -l", 279Kb according to the NOTE from R CMD check.
But that's not all that big, is it? And anyway I *did* ask
R CMD build to re-save it!
When I load stomata.rda, object.size() says that stomata uses 1611312 bytes
I'm running Ubuntu 20.04.2 and R version 4.0.4.
Has anyone else ever been confronted with this bizarre phenomenon?
Thanks for any tips.
