#' sets and fixes knitr hooks
#' fixes a well-known bug in the knit_hook 'chunk' and provides a hook entitle
#' 'com'
#' There is a well_known bug in the knit_hook 'chunk' which prevents using
#' results = 'asis' in conjunction with user-defined hooks (including com, to be
#' discussed next). Calling this function allows user-defined hooks to be called
#' with results = 'asis' and get the expected result. This function also
#' provides a knitr hook called 'com', by setting 'com = TRUE' in a knitr chunk,
#' the resulting code is converted to a latex command. For example:
#' '<<mytable, com=TRUE>>=' results in a latex command entitled '\\mytable', which will
#' produce the exact output that would have appeared in the spot of the chunk
#' @examples
#' knitr_sethooks()
