Thanks for sharing this!
Since I don't have any elisp skills at all I was wondering if
it's difficult to implement the following features:
1) When calling ess-makeSweave/Latex it would be nice to see if
an error or warning has occured (similar to AUCTeX's
2) ess-makeLatex could be enhanced by checking cross-references
(similar to the SweaveMakefile).
3) probably a newbie mistake: when I include figures using
something like `<<foo,fig=T>>=' they are all displayed while
Sweaving (`M-n s'). Is there a way to supress this?
4) is there a way of making preview-latex aware of chunks
including tables created with the Hmisc package and the latex
command? I've read a thread here that it wouldn't be too
difficult including pics but there not really being a need for
this feature (at least for plots).
Please don't get me wrong -- I don't want to appear ungratful
towards all of your efforts. I've only been using the combo
R/ESS/Sweave/AUCTeX for a few weeks now. But I'm already starting
to grow accustomed to it because it's saving me a lot of time ;-)
