Arguments

x

[any]
Object to check.

access

[character(1)]
Single string containing possible characters ‘r’, ‘w’ and ‘x’ to force a check for read, write or execute access rights, respectively. Write and executable rights are not checked on Windows.

extension

[character]
Vector of allowed file extensions, matched case insensitive.

.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 assertFileExists/assert_file_exists return x invisibly, whereas checkFileExists/check_file_exists and testFileExists/test_file_exists return TRUE. If the check is not successful, assertFileExists/assert_file_exists throws an error message, testFileExists/test_file_exists returns FALSE, and checkFileExists returns a string with the error message. The function expect_file_exists always returns an expectation.

Note

The functions without the suffix “exists” are deprecated and will be removed from the package in a future version due to name clashes. test_file has been unexported already.

# Check if R's COPYING file is readable

# Check if R's COPYING file is readable and writable
testFileExists(file.path(R.home(), "COPYING"), access = "rw")
