To make sure it does not wipe out existing functions in the environment, only functions that do not exist in the environment are injected.

Usage

inject_funs(...)

Arguments

...

Named arguments of functions. If empty, previously injected functions will be emptied.

Note

For expert use only. Do not use it unless you clearly understand it.

Examples

library(evaluate)
# normally you cannot capture the output of system
evaluate("system('R --version')")

# replace the system() function
inject_funs(system = function(...) cat(base::system(..., intern = TRUE), sep = "\n"))

evaluate("system('R --version')")

inject_funs()  # empty previously injected functions
