I recommend that the allowable values for docs be included in the short help output generated by the command 'rcmd build --help'. The html help file for build does not contain this information (which is fine since the HTML help system supports multiple operating systems). I did find the options I needed in the html help for install. Given the voluminous (... and inherently somewhat disconnected...) documentation of R, I'm sure someone can point me to other locations where these options are documented. However, since the options seem to be OS specific and there is already help output available from the OS specific command, I recommend that the options be included in the short help listing generated in association with the command. Thanks for all of your hard work.

Chuck
