How to see data for a package built under Windows

Gillian Raab
I have followed the instructions on how to build a Windows package and
everything seems to work EXCEPT that I can't see the data files that I have
loaded into the data directory. I have placed the appropriate data in the
data directory (as in the instructions). There are 3 data sets, which I can
see when I use the command in R. Details below. I have searched everywhere
to try to fix this, but no luck. Help please.

> data(package='DiagMeta')

a windows pops up containing the following (Mowatt has a comment because I
have documented it)

Data sets in package 'DiagMeta':

Mowatt                  Mowatt meta analysis
Scheidler
Wardlaw


But when I type
>Mowatt  it is not found.

The output I get at the command prompt when creating the zip file gives

C:\Documents and Settings\gillian raab\Desktop\francescaR>R CMD INSTALL
--build
DiagMeta
installing to 'c:/PROGRA~1/r/R-27~1.0/library'

Re: How to see data for a package built under Windows

Fox, John
Dear Gillian,

Unless you add the directive

        LazyData: yes

to the package DESCRIPTION file, you'll need to use the data() command to
access the data in the package -- e.g., data(Mowatt).

I hope this helps,
 John
