[Rd] Non-vignette sweave file in package

Dear all,

I'm documenting an elaborate analysis as a private package. The package writes all required output to a database. I use a Sweave file to transform all the results from the database into a report.

Now I would like to add this Sweave to my package. I'm a bit puzzled on how to do that. It is not a vignette: the data is not available when the package is build and I need to recompile the Sweave file on demand (after the analysis was run).

So I have two questions.
1) Where to put a non-vignette Sweave file in a package.
2) How do I compile that Sweave file.

Best regards,

To call in the statistician after the experiment is done may be no more than asking him to perform a post-mortem examination: he may be able to say what the experiment died of.

The combination of some data and an aching desire for an answer does not ensure that a reasonable answer can be extracted from a given body of data.
