[Rd] Rcmd check problem

Hi, all.

I was trying to build my R package with R 2.15.1 32bit and win7.

I basically follow the routine in Steven Mosher's blog http://stevemosher.wordpress.com/step-10-build/

After I fixed the path, and built the skeleton of the package, I started command prompt and used the following commands in building my package

Rcmd check myPackageName

Rcmd build myPackageName

Rcmd check myPackageName.tar.gz

Rcmd INSTALL --build myPackageName.tar.gz

Rcmd check myPackageName.zip

The last check command return me an error

Rcmd check myPackageName.zip

Error in rawToChar(block[seq_len(ns)]) :   embedded nul in string:
'PK\003\004\n\0\0\0\0\0}?1A\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\f\ 0\0\0myPackageName/PK\003\004\n\0\0\0\0\0y?1A\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\0\021\0\0\0myPackageName/demo/PK\003\004\024\0\002\0\b\0y' Execution halted

I do not know what it means. On the other hand, we I load myPackageName.zip as a package from the local zip file, it works. I did not get any error from my other two Rcmd check commands neither.

I am wondering whether the returned error of Rcmd check means anything, and whether my package can be uploaded to CRAN without much trouble.
