[Rd] Packing of data files in packages

I am writing a package with some large data files, so it would be good to use the feature of zipping data.

However, I use .R files to read in the data from one (sometimes more) files, so Rcmd build --zip-data
gives a package which does'nt work. How should I do it, is it better ti zip each data file individually and use the functions to read from zipped files, or are there some other solution? Did'nt find anything in "Writing R extensions".
