[R] Simple R (in Sweave) Question

I am writing a report using Sweave with specific R output incorporated into the text using the Sexpr{} command. I have run into two specific issues:

  1. If the result inside the Sexpr{} command is an integer less than 10 I would like to print the “word” for that number – e.g., “seven” for 7.
  2. If a p-value is “equal to zero” to some arbitrary number of decimal places -- e.g., formatC(pvalue,format=”f”,digits=4) returns 0.0000 -- I would like to print “<0.00005”.

I have attempted searching R-help et al but am not sure what keywords to use for these questions. I can picture the format of functions to solve these issues but would be interested in pointers to previous solutions if they exist.

Thank you in advance for any help.
