An rd_section represents an Rd command that can appear at the top-level of an Rd document, like \name{}, \title{}, \description{}, or \section{}.


rd_section(type, value)



Section type. Stored in type field, and in class rd_section_{type}. To avoid namespace clashes between different extensions, this should include the package name.


Section data. Only used by format() and merge() methods.


If provide your own rd_section type, you'll also need to define a format.rd_section_{type} method that returns formatted Rd output. You may also need to provide a merge.rd_section_{type} method if two sections can not be combined with rd_section(x$type, c(x$value, y$value)). See vignette("extending") for more details.
