Dear list subscriber,

I am quite puzzled by the behaviour of processing Sweave files within an R session, i.e. Sweave("foo.Rnw") versus R CMD Sweave foo.Rnw

In the former the environmental variable 'SWEAVE_STYLEPATH_DEFAULT = TRUE' is obeyed (this is set in etc/Renviron.site as well as under the users home directory in .Renviron). That is the hard-coded path to Sweave.sty is included in the resultant tex-file, whereas if the Sweave file is processed from cmd.exe as R CMD Sweave foo.Rnw, only \usepackage{Sweave} is included.

Any pointers are much appreciated.
