Tidy a(n) optim object masquerading as list


Broom tidies a number of lists that are effectively S3 objects without a class attribute. For example, stats::optim(), svd() and interp::interp() produce consistent output, but because they do not have a class attribute, they cannot be handled by S3 dispatch.

These functions look at the elements of a list and determine if there is an appropriate tidying method to apply to the list. Those tidiers are implemented as functions of the form tidy_<function> or glance_<function> and are not exported (but they are documented!).

If no appropriate tidying method is found, they throw an error.


glance_optim(x, ...)



A list returned from stats::optim().


Additional arguments. Not used. Needed to match generic signature only. Cautionary note: Misspelled arguments will be absorbed in ..., where they will be ignored. If the misspelled argument has a default value, the default value will be used. For example, if you pass conf.lvel = 0.9, all computation will proceed using conf.level = 0.95. Two exceptions here are:

  • tidy() methods will warn when supplied an exponentiate argument if it will be ignored.

  • augment() methods will warn when supplied a newdata argument if it will be ignored.


A tibble::tibble() with exactly one row and columns:


Convergence code.


Number of calls to 'fn'.


Number of calls to 'gr'.


Minimized or maximized output value.
