[R] Output and Word

On page 2 of the manual, Section 2 ("Requirements") has

  "The package also requires a utility to zip and unzip compressed files,
  such as unzip, Winzip or jar."

With a footnote that unzip can be found at


for free. You can use any utility that can zip/unzip pkzip formatted files.
If you want to use something else, you can. See ?odfWeaveControl.

I didn't use utils::zip.unpack since there did not appear to be an analogous
utility for re-zipping the file. Is this incorrect?

I will put an automatic check on package startup for the above utilities and print a warning if nothing is found.
