##### Build package.

Building converts a package source directory into a single bundled file. If binary = FALSE this creates a tar.gz package that can be installed on any platform, provided they have a full development environment (although packages without source code can typically be install out of the box). If binary = TRUE, the package will have a platform specific extension (e.g. .zip for windows), and will only be installable on the current platform, but no development environment is needed.

##### Usage
build(pkg = ".", path = NULL, binary = FALSE, vignettes = TRUE,
manual = FALSE, args = NULL, quiet = FALSE)
##### Arguments
pkg

package description, can be path or package name. See as.package for more information

path

binary

Produce a binary (--binary) or source ( --no-manual --no-resave-data) version of the package.

vignettes, manual

For source packages: if FALSE, don't build PDF vignettes (--no-build-vignettes) or manual (--no-manual).

args

An optional character vector of additional command line arguments to be passed to R CMD build if binary = FALSE, or R CMD install if binary = TRUE.

quiet

if TRUE suppresses output from this function.

##### Value

a string giving the location (including file name) of the built package
