[R] Which should I use? system.file() path.package() find.package()

For a package that I am creating, I have some files in the "inst" directory. In the package man pages, I want to have R code that accesses these files.

As of R-2.13.0, it looks like I can use any of: system.file() path.package() find.package()

There are some differences between these functions, so I am wondering, is there is a preferred approach?
