build_vignettes: Build package vignettes.

Description Usage Arguments See Also

View source: R/vignettes.r


Builds package vignettes using the same algorithm that R CMD build does. This means including non-Sweave vignettes, using makefiles (if present), and copying over extra files. You need to ensure that these files are not included in the built package - ideally they should not be checked into source, or at least excluded with .Rbuildignore
