Syntax Highlighter for R


Syntax highlighter for R based on output from the R parser

See Also

The main function of the package is highlight.

highlight delegates rendering the document to renderers, such as the renderer_latex or renderer_html and is helped by a detective to make sense of the results from the parser. The package ships a simple_detective.

The package also defines a custom sweave driver (HighlightWeaveLatex) for latex based on the standard sweave latex driver (RweaveLatex) using highlight to perform syntax highlighting of R code chunks.
