See ?help, in particular look for its argument "offline" and the section
"Details":
If 'offline' is 'TRUE', hardcopy of the documentation is produced
by running the LaTeX version of the help page through 'latex'
(note that LaTeX 2e is needed). You need to customize the file
'R_HOME/bin/helpPRINT.bat' which contains an example. The
appearance of the output can be customized through a file
'Rhelp.cfg' somewhere in your LaTeX search path.
See also ?Rdconv for converting Rd files to several formats.
If you still need more information, please read the "Writing R
Extensions" manual.
