package.dir: Directory of a package

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/package.dir.R

Description

Display a partial or complete directory of a package. By default, suppress common package contents to focus on 'demo', 'doc', 'scripts', and similar subdirectories whose contents might contain examples that could make it easier to learn capabilities of the package.

package.dir(package='base', lib.loc=NULL,
      exclude=c('chtml', 'data', 'help', 'html', 'latex', 'libs',
                'man', 'Meta', 'po', 'R', 'R-ex', 'src'),
      include=NULL, pattern=NULL, recursive=FALSE)

Arguments

package

character string naming a locally installed package. If 'package' is not locally installed, it is an error.

lib.loc

a character vector with path names of R libraries, or 'NULL'. The default value of 'NULL' corresponds to all libraries currently known. If the default is used, the loaded packages are searched before the libraries.

exclude

either NULL or a character vector naming subdirectories of 'package' to exclude from the list. If 'include' is not NULL, 'exclude' is ignored.

include

either NULL or a character vector naming subdirectories of 'package' to exclude from the list. If 'include' is not NULL, 'exclude is ignored.

pattern

an optional regular expression passed with the results of system.file to dir. Only file names which match the regular expression will be returned. This is ignored if 'recursive' is FALSE.

recursive

logical. Should the listing recurse into subdirectories?

Details

1. fullPath <- system.file(package=package, lib.loc=lib.loc)

2. Dir <- dir(fullPath)

3. Restrict Dir only to 'include' if provided and to all but 'exclude' otherwise.

4. If recursive, return a list produced by dir for each of the subdirectories of interest determined in step 3. Else, return only the list of subdirectories from step 3.

Value

If recursive, a list of the contents of the subdirectories of interest. Else, a character vector of the names of the relevant subdirectories.
