comment Using the “master file” with emacs and Sweave
No. I think it something to do with the file extensions (they're .Rnw not .tex).

comment Using the “master file” with emacs and Sweave
To sweave a document you use the command M-n s and it doesn't (seem) to have any idea about the concept of a master file. I tried to hack my .emacs, but things quickly got messy. For example, auctex expects .tex file extensions. At this point, I thought there must be a better way.

In emacs C+c C+b copies the preamble and the "included file" into a temporary file called _region.tex. It then latexs that file. Of course, chapter numbers, etc, are off. But it's very handy for quick checks.

comment Reduce space before and after an enviroment
@TH: If vspace is the wrong thing to do, what's the correct thing to do, i.e. how do you redefine Hinput? Or is this another question?
