[R] package.skeleton warning

I have many code files so listing them will be long. When leave it empty, I get
package.skeleton(name = "myPackage", code_files = "")
Error in sys.source(cf, envir = environment) : '' is not an existing file
There should be an automatic way to source all code files instead of listing them. Even if I upload and have them as R objects, I shouldn't have to list them in the list arg.

You are saying that your code is in a file called


but you have no such file.  If you really do have your code already in some files, list them in the code_files argument, otherwise leave it blank.
