Thanks but I could not get R2html in prettyR to work:

> R2html(Rfile="/ophth/cornea/R/lme_4.R",
+ HTMLfile="/ophth/cornea/Reports/lme_4.html") Error in CreateIndexFile(HTMLfile, basenavfile, baselistfile, title) :

        unused argument(s) ( ...)

lme_3.r has the R script and lme_3.html is the html file I'd like to create. The help file for R2html does not give an example.

> args(R2html)

function (Rfile, HTMLfile, echo = TRUE, split = FALSE, browse = TRUE,

    title = "R listing", bgcolor = "#dddddd", ...)

What am I doing wrong? I can source the script file.

> args(CreateIndexFile)

function (HTMLbase, HTMLdir, title = "R listing")

Is there a problem in R2html's call to CreateIndexFile? The arguments don't seem to match.
