knitLatex: knitLatex: Latex table helpers for knitr.

Description Details


This package was inspired by the xtable package, but allows for more fine_grained control, especially in regards to the longtable and supertabular (which is not included in xtable) environments. This package provides four functions to assist in using knitr with latex:


  • xTab: creates a basic latex table.

  • lTab: creates a longtable evironment.

  • sTab: creates a supertabular environment.

  • knitr_sethooks: fixes a bug in the knit_hook chunk and provids a 'com' hook which turns knitr output into latex commands
