Although the specific behaviour that was reported has been fixed, bugs
remain in Sweave's processing of comment lines when keep.source=TRUE
This is in some senses a follow-up from earlier bugs. Hence the query --
what is the preferred procedure, to submit a new bug report? (Another option
might be to add a comment to the web page for bug 14459.)
Is there now a preference to submit via the web page, rather than send a message
to r-bugs at r-project.org? If so, the relevant paragraph in the FAQ surely requires
On Unix-like systems a bug report can be generated using the function bug.report(). This automatically includes the version information and sends the bug to the correct address. Alternatively the bug report can be emailed to R-bugs at R-project.org or submitted to the Web page at http://bugs.R-project.org/. Please try including results of sessionInfo() in your bug report.
I have posted files test10.Rnw, test11.Rnw, and test12.Rnw that demonstrate the bugs at
The output files test10.tex, test11.tex and test12.tex are from r53870 on
test10.Rnw has a code chunk that begins and ends with a comment.
An NA appears following the final comment. This disappears if I
remove the initial comment line.
test11.Rnw follows a comment line with a named code chunk. The
comment line does not appear in the output.
test12.Rnw places a line of code between the comment line and the
named code chunk. The comment line does now appear in the output.
