+# decumar
+
+Decumar is a tool for interleaving latex and R. It uses specially formatted comment blocks, so your file is always valid latex.
+
+Decumar is similar to sweave, but comes from a slightly different heritage. As well as deriving inspiration from literate programming, it also draws ideas from code generation. Why should you use decumar instead of sweave?
+
+ * you only need one file
+ * it's always valid latex
+ * caching is built in
+ * more types of output (figures, listing, ...)
