Usage
lstinputSourceFromRForge(PKG, TYPE, FILENAME, PROJECT, from, to, offset.before = 0, offset.after = 0, LineLength = getOption("width"), withLines = ifelse(TYPE=="R", TRUE, FALSE), fromRForge = getSweaveListingOption("fromRForge"), base.url = getSweaveListingOption("base.url"), ...)
Arguments
PKG
character; name of package to be downloaded
TYPE
character; style of the source code --- "man" or "R"
FILENAME
character; the name of the source file to be downloaded
PROJECT
character; the name of the R-Forge project
from
vector of characters or vector of numerics or missing; beginnings of the code sniplets; for details see copySourceFromRForge; note that you need to escape meta characters if you use regular expressions, cf. regex.
to
vector of characters or vector of numerics or missing; endings of the code sniplets; for details see copySourceFromRForge; note that you need to escape meta characters if you use regular expressions, cf. regex.
offset.before
numeric; numbers of lines to be included before the code sniplets; defaults to 0
offset.after
numeric; numbers of lines to be included after the the code sniplets; defaults to 0
LineLength
numeric number of characters per line; defaults to getOption("width");
withLines
logical; shall line-numbers be issued
fromRForge
logical; shall code be downloaded from an R-Forge mirror? Defaults to the corresponding global option
base.url
character; base url from where to download the code sniplet
...
further arguments to be passed on to link[base]{grep}
Details

includes [downloaded] code sniplets in ‘.R’ ‘.Rd’ format in some TeX-lstlistings environment; output is issued on stdout, hence included in ‘.Rnw’ file if wrapped to

<< /chunkname/, results=tex, echo=FALSE>>=
 ... R code ...
@
For example
<>=
lstinputSourceFromRForge("distr","man","BinomParameter-class.Rd","distr")
@

<>=

lstinputSourceFromRForge("distrEx","R","Skewness.R","distr", from = "\"skewness\", signature\\(x = \"Binom\"", to = "\\}\\)")
@

Within ‘.Rd’ code, examples are type-set in ‘.R’ style; vectors are allowed for arguments from, to; lstinputSourceFromRForge uses copySourceFromRForge for download / reading from cache; line numbers in the downloaded source may be printed out
