Check that an argument is an atomic vector

Share:

Description

An atomic vector is defined slightly different from specifications in is.atomic and is.vector: An atomic vector is either logical, integer, numeric, complex, character or raw and can have any attributes except a dimension attribute (like matrices). I.e., a factor is an atomic vector, but a matrix or NULL are not. In short, this is mostly equivalent to is.atomic(x) && !is.null(x) && is.null(dim(x)).

Arguments

x

[any]
Object to check.

any.missing

[logical(1)]
Are vectors with missing values allowed? Default is TRUE.

all.missing

[logical(1)]
Are vectors with only missing values allowed? Default is TRUE.

len

[integer(1)]
Exact expected length of x.

min.len

[integer(1)]
Minimal length of x.

max.len

[integer(1)]
Maximal length of x.

unique

[logical(1)]
Must all values be unique? Default is FALSE.

names

[character(1)]
Check for names. See checkNamed for possible values. Default is “any” which performs no check at all.

.var.name

[character(1)]
Name of the checked object to print in assertions. Defaults to the heuristic implemented in vname.

add

[AssertCollection]
Collection to store assertion messages. See AssertCollection.

info

[character(1)]
Extra information to be included in the message for the testthat reporter. See expect_that.

label

[character(1)]
Name of the checked object to print in messages. Defaults to the heuristic implemented in vname.

Value

Depending on the function prefix: If the check is successful, the functions assertAtomicVector/assert_atomic_vector return x invisibly, whereas checkAtomicVector/check_atomic_vector and testAtomicVector/test_atomic_vector return TRUE. If the check is not successful, assertAtomicVector/assert_atomic_vector throws an error message, testAtomicVector/test_atomic_vector returns FALSE, and checkAtomicVector returns a string with the error message. The function expect_atomic_vector always returns an expectation.
