setIntegerWithRange(prefix = "Integer", min, max, where=topenv(parent.frame()))

Arguments

prefix

Prefix for new class name. Default is "Integer"

min

Minimal value for this range object.

max

Maximal value for this range object.

where

the environment in which to store or remove the definition. Defaults to the top-level environment of the calling function.

Details

The purpose of creating such a class genenrator is to define a special range properties which could be set as singaling field, such as Properties object.

pars <- par.gen$new(size = new("IntegerWithMin1Max100", 5.5))
## Covert to integer
pars$size #current value is 5
try(pars$size <- 300) # out of range error
pars$size <- 4.4 # covert to integer
pars$size
