[Rd] Creating package Vignette

Hi all, I was trying to create some vignette files for my newly developed package, however wondering whether there could be any simpler way to do so. In writing R extension it is advised to go through Sweave route, however I have already got a big pdf file and want to use this as package vignette.

So far I have manually created the inst/doc folder in the main package skeleton, and put that file into this, which is not working by calling "vignette(file_name)" after I build and load the package. I am getting following error without opening that pdf file: "vignette 'file_name' *not* found"

So I like to know, is there any way to use any arbitrary pdf file as vignette?

Any suggestion is highly appreciated.

Thanks,
