getting latex to input a file that it then ignores

This may sound dumb, maybe there is an alternative, but
I'm trying to get latex to read a file that it then ignores so that
my packaging script can see that latex needs it and archive it with
the release document latex produces. The immediate problem is
to include an "R" script. If mjmtol in the code below  uses #1, 
then xxx.R is picked up
as required by latex but with the definition below it never
seems to read it. Is there some simple way to do this?

\newcommand{\mjmtol}[1] {}
