8.1 Other directories

  • src/: source and header files for compiled code: need an other book

  • inst/: we already see it in the data chapter (inst/extdata/ here). We will add CITATION in it

  • tools/: configure tools and store useful stuff for maintainers

  • demo/: legacy phenomenon, we should use a good README.md and vignettes (chapter 17)

  • exec/: executable scripts : flagged as executables (?), apparently inst/ is a preferred location

  • po/: translations for messages (both internal and from the package)
