Re: [Rd] How to create vignette.pdf for R-2.13.0?

Dear Duncan,

Thank you for your example, however it is different since it does not use x and y. What about print(x+y)?

Sorry, I do not believe that there is a bug in my code, since:

1, it worked in all versions from R starting with R-2.6.0 till R-2.12.2.
2, the identical code works in the examples
3, this code (or a similar code) is the starting code which all users of 
xps have to use, and there was never a problem.

Maybe the reason could be that my code has to import - the CEL-files from the package dir
- the file SchemeTest3.root from the package dir ??

Best regards
Christian
