I've found two problems in interpreting adv-r-master/book/build-book.r: 1. All pathes in build-book.r refer to the starting-directory "adv-r-master". However, the script build-book.r is located in the directory "book", which is located in directory "adv-r-master". Therefore, pathes starting at "." are wrong (should start at "..").
2. Some file names have endings "Rmd", but e.g. in the line "chapters <- dir(".", pattern = "\\.rmd$")" these endings are named "rmd". Therefore, the files (e.g. "base-types.Rmd") cannot be found. Pandoc I have installed. Maybe there will arise further problems, but still I am experimenting with pathes. Best, Albrecht -- Albrecht Kauffmann alkau...@fastmail.fm Am Mi, 14.
