#' Convert Sweave to knitr documents
#' This function converts an Sweave document to a \pkg{knitr}-compatible
#' document.
#' The pseudo command \samp{\\SweaveInput{file.Rnw}} is converted to a code
#' chunk header \code{<<child='file.Rnw'>>=}.
#' Similarly \samp{\\SweaveOpts{opt = value}} is converted to a code chunk
#' \samp{opts_chunk$set(opt = value)} with the chunk option \code{include =
#' FALSE}; the options are automatically fixed in the same way as local chunk
#' options (explained below).
#' The Sweave package \samp{\\usepackage{Sweave}} in the preamble is removed
#' because it is not required.
#' Chunk options are updated if necessary: option values \code{true} and
#' \code{false} are changed to \code{TRUE} and \code{FALSE} respectively;
#' \code{fig=TRUE} is removed because it is not necessary for \pkg{knitr} (plots
#' will be automatically generated); \code{fig=FALSE} is changed to
#' \code{fig.keep='none'}; the devices \code{pdf/jpeg/png/eps/tikz=TRUE} are
#' converted to \code{dev='pdf'/'jpeg'/'png'/'postscript'/'tikz'};
#' \code{pdf/jpeg/png/eps/tikz=FALSE} are removed;
#' \code{results=tex/verbatim/hide} are changed to
#' \code{results='asis'/'markup'/'hide'}; \code{width/height} are changed to
#' \code{fig.width/fig.height}; \code{prefix.string} is changed to
#' \code{fig.path}; \code{print/term/prefix=TRUE/FALSE} are removed; most of the
#' character options (e.g. \code{engine} and \code{out.width}) are quoted;
#' \code{keep.source=TRUE/FALSE} is changed to \code{tidy=FALSE/TRUE} (note the
#' order of values).
#' If a line \code{@@} (it closes a chunk) directly follows a previous
#' \code{@@}, it is removed; if a line \code{@@} appears before a code chunk and
#' no chunk is before it, it is also removed, because \pkg{knitr} only uses one
#' \samp{@@} after \samp{<<>>=} by default (which is not the original Noweb
#' syntax but more natural).
#' @param file Path to the Rnw file (must be encoded in UTF-8).
#' @param output Output file path. By default, \file{file.Rnw} produces
#'   \file{file-knitr.Rnw}); if \code{text} is not NULL, no output file will be
#'   produced.
#' @param text An alternative way to provide the Sweave code as a character
#'   string. If \code{text} is provided, \code{file} will be ignored.
#' @return If \code{text} is \code{NULL}, the \code{output} file is written and
#'   \code{NULL} is returned. Otherwise, the converted text string is returned.
#' @note If \samp{\\SweaveOpts{}} spans across multiple lines, it will not be
#'   fixed, and you have to fix it manually. The LaTeX-style syntax of Sweave
#'   chunks are ignored (see \code{?SweaveSyntaxLatex}); only the Noweb syntax
#'   is supported.
#' @seealso \code{\link{Sweave}}, \code{\link{gsub}}
#' @references The motivation of the changes in the syntax:

#' @export
#' @examples Sweave2knitr(text='<<echo=TRUE>>=') # this is valid
