Hi Jeff,
thanks for your reply.

Can you elaborate a bit more what you mean? I know very lillte knitr,
mostly because I use it in Rstudio to render Rmarkdown documents.
However I do not need a template engine for reporting, and I can't see
how I should use it.

Can you provide me with  just a minimal example?
