Serialize R objects as Javsscript/ActionScript variables

Description

This function takes R objects and serializes them as Javascript/ActionScript values. It uses the specified names in the R call as Javascript variable names. One can also specify qualifiers (‘public’, ‘protected’, ‘private’) and also types. These are optional, but useful, in ActionScript.

Usage

1
asJSVars(..., .vars = list(...), qualifier = character(), types = character())

Arguments

...

name = value pairs where the value is an R object that is converted to JSON format and name is the name of the corresponding Javascript variable.

.vars

this is an alternative to ... as a way to specify a collection of name = value pairs that is already in a list.

qualifier

a character vector (recycled as necessary) which is used as qualifiers for the individual ActionScript variables. The values should be public, protected or private.

types

either a logical value or a character vector (which is recycled if necessary). If this is TRUE, then we compute the Javascript type for each of the R objects (using the non-exported function jsType)

Value

A character vector of length 1 giving the variable declarations and initializations.
