Subject: [R] Loading namespaces

I'm creating a package for my own use that uses some S4 classes but no methods.

I have a file called NAMESPACE it contains the line:


and at the top of the R file I have

setClass("foo", representation(x="numeric")

and the line:


When I run R CMD check I get Syntax error in the only R file. If I comment out the .onLoad function I get a package/namespace load failed error.

Are libname and pkgname parameters for the function .onLoad that need to explicitly stated, or does R populate them when the package is loaded?

Does .onLoad as defined above do enough to ensure that the namesapce is loaded?
