[Rd] Package manual Tex file

Hi Duncan,

Thanks for your response.

The command  "R CMD Rd2pdf --no-clean fooPackage" is creating the pdf file
with the package manual but not the .tex file. I find this odd given that
the following is part of the log:

"Hmm ... looks like a package

Converting Rd files to LaTeX .

Creating pdf output from LaTeX ...

(/Users/package manual/.Rd2pdf14087/Rd2.tex

LaTeX2e <2009/09/24>"

I don't see the .Rd2pdf14087 folder (Note also that I'm on Mac OS and I set
the options to see all hidden files).

Alternatively, the command below successfully creates the .tex file for me.
However, I wonder if there is a way to do this for all .Rd files at once
(including the DESCRIPTION file).

R CMD Rdconv -o fooFUN.tex --type=latex fooFUN.Rd

Thanks again for your help,
