The knitr package was designed to be a transparent engine for dynamic
report generation with R, solve some long-standing problems in Sweave,
and combine features in other add-on packages into one package. It is
a general-purpose package, and currently supports LaTeX, HTML and
Markdown (still extensible).

See the package website [1] to get started; see the package manuals
([2], [3] and [4]) for a quick overview of what knitr can do; see the
demos [5] for other examples.
