There is a new version, 0.2-9, of the Windows XP batchfiles
distribution.  It is a zip file containing a set of Windows
XP batch scripts useful in conjunction with R.

The latest release adds sweave.bat which will 1. run sweave,
2. run pdflatex and then 3. view the pdf in sequence.  If
sweave or pdflatex terminates in an error or if either fails
to produce a file newer than its input the script is halted
at that point.

There is also a new home page and public svn repository
for the batchfiles project:


The home page has these and other links:

- "README" link provides more details

- "Download batchfiles distribution from CRAN" link
   to download the distribution as a .zip file
