Arguments

x

[any]
Object to check.

.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.

Value

Depending on the function prefix: If the check is successful, the functions assertNull/assert_null return x invisibly, whereas checkNull/check_null and testNull/test_null return TRUE. If the check is not successful, assertNull/assert_null throws an error message, testNull/test_null returns FALSE, and checkNull returns a string with the error message. The function expect_null always returns an expectation.
