[Rd] install/build/build --binary

I have question regarding package installation.

What is the difference between check, INSTALL, build and build --binary, which imply which and what order does one normally perform them? I have been trying:

R CMD build /mypackage
R CMD check /mypackage
R CMD build --binary /mypackage

in that order but wanted to check that this is right.

Also, what portion of the check process can be run right from R rather than from a script and assuming my package is in /mypackage and its subdirectories what R command(s) from tools do I issue? It occurs to me that if I do it from R rather than from scripts I could turn on debugging on the relevant tools command and more easily find out what they are checking when things go bad to help me track down my problems.

I am using Windows XP and R 2.0.1beta .

Thanks.
