Dear List,

I have a problem building an R package using R 1.7.1 that I cannot resolve
myself. R CMD check tells me that functions I documented properly in Rd-files
are not documented and gives a TeX error at the end, altough the Rd files
check is OK. I have three fucntions, one gets through without complaining, the
other two don't. All the docu for the example data is also OK.
I went through the Rd files over and over, but could not find any problem.

Can anyone help me?

Thank in advance,


with R CMD check daMA (that's my package), I get:

* checking for working latex ... OK
* using log directory '/home/jlandgr1/stat_stuff/Rpackages/daMA/daMA.Rcheck'
* checking for file 'daMA/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* checking if this is a source package ... OK
