Introduction

Please read the vignette. Or, after installation, the help page:

help("document-package", package = "document")
#> Document a Single R Code File
#> 
#> Description:
#> 
#>      Have you ever been tempted to create 'roxygen2'-style
#>      documentation comments for one of your functions that was not part
#>      of one of your packages (yet)? This is exactly what this package
#>      is about: running 'roxygen2::roxygenize' on (chunks of) a single
#>      code file.
#>      This package enables you to
#> 
#>        1. create function documentation with 'roxygen2'
#> 
#>        2. detect code/documentation mismatches
#> 
#>        3. save the documentation to disk
#> 
#>        4. view the documentation in your interactive R session
#> 
#>      You will probably be looking for 'document' and 'man', the
#>      remaining functions are mainly for internal use.
#> 
#> Details:
#> 
#>      R is a programming language that supports and checks documentation
#>      for program libraries (called `packages'). The package 'roxygen2'
#>      provides a tool for creating documentation from annotated source
#>      code - much like 'doxygen', 'javadoc' and 'docstrings/pydoc' do.
#> 
#>      And R is a free software environment for statistical computing and
#>      graphics, used by people like me who start out hacking down code,
#>      eventually pouring chunks of code into functions (and sometimes
#>      even ending up creating and documenting packages). Along that work
#>      flow you cannot use R's documentation system, let alone
#>      'roxygen2', unless you have come to forge your code into a
#>      package.
#> 
#>      I am fully aware of the fact that 'roxygen2' is meant to document
#>      packages, not single code chunks. So should you. Nevertheless I
#>      feel the temptation to use 'roxygen2'-style comments in code
#>      chunks that are not part of any package. And to convert them to
#>      pdf for better readability.
#> 
#> Warning:
#> 
#>      This package writes to disk, so *never* run as superuser.
#> 
#> Note:
#> 
#>      This package is basically a wrapper to
#> 
#>        1. 'roxygen2'. It internally creates a temporary package from
#>           the code file provided (using 'utils::package.skeleton')
#>           which it then passes to 'roxygen2::roxygenize'.
#> 
#>        2. 'R CMD' commands run by 'callr'.
#> 
#> See Also:
#> 
#>      'docstring' (<https://cran.r-project.org/package=docstring>) also
#>      creates temporary help pages as well but using a different
#>      technical approach (allowing you to view them in the 'RStudio'
#>      help pane). But it creates them from python style 'docstring'-like
#>      comments it then parses into 'roxygen2'. And it does not write to
#>      file so far.
