Changes after changes in R , R-forge

  • cleanup issues:

    -Package: distrDoc Version: 2.2 Flavor: r-devel-linux-ix86 Check: package vignettes ... WARNING *** Weave Errors *** File /home/hornik/tmp/R.check/r-devel/Work/PKGS/distrDoc.Rcheck/inst/doc/distr.Rnw : chunk 36 (label=plotex9) Error : '%' is an unrecognized escape in character string starting "my Distribution: %"

    => removed tag in distr.Rnw in distrDoc <<cleanup, echo=FALSE>>= unloadNamespace("SweaveListingUtils") @ similarly in newDistributions.Rnw

    => small changes in SweaveListingUtils in order to pass R CMD check again...

############## v 2.2 ##############
