Sweave combines typesetting with LATEX and data anlysis with S into integrated statistical documents. When run through R or Splus, all data analysis output (tables, graphs,…) is created on the fly and inserted into a final LATEX document. Options control which parts of the original S code are shown to or hidden from the reader, respectively. Many S users are also LATEX users, hence no new software has to be learned. The report can be automatically updated if data or analysis change, which allows for truly reproducible research.
