str(apats)
knit_patterns$set(apats[["rnw"]])  # set pattern list from apats

knit_patterns$get(c("chunk.begin", "chunk.end", "inline.code"))

# a customized pattern list; has to empty the original patterns first!
knit_patterns$restore()
# we may want to use this in an HTML document

str(knit_patterns$get())
