rnoaa_caching: rnoaa caching

Description Details Useful user functions Caching objects for each data source See Also


Manage data caches


To get the cache directory for a data source, see the method x$cache_path_get()

cache_delete only accepts 1 file name, while cache_delete_all doesn't accept any names, but deletes all files. For deleting many specific files, use cache_delete in a lapply() type call

Note that cached files will continue to be used until they are deleted. It's possible to run into problems when changes happen in your R setup. For example, at least one user reported changing versions of this package and running into problems because a cached data file from a previous version of rnoaa did not work with the newer version of rnoaa. You should occassionally delete all cached files.
