is.empty: Empty Value

Description Usage Arguments Examples

Description

Rails-inspired helper that checks if vector values are "empty", i.e. if it's: NULL, zero-length, NA, NaN, FALSE, an empty string or 0. Note that unlike its native R is.<something> sibling functions, is.empty is vectorised (hence the "values").

Usage

1
is.empty(x, trim = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

x

an object to check its emptiness

trim

trim whitespace? (TRUE by default)

...

additional arguments for sapply
