tar_callR Documentation

Identify the called targets function.


Get the name of the currently running targets interface function. Returns NULL if not invoked inside a target or ⁠_targets.R⁠ (i.e. if not directly invoked by tar_make(), tar_visnetwork(), etc.).




Character of length 1, name of the currently running targets interface function. For example, suppose you have a call to tar_call() inside a target or ⁠_targets.R⁠. Then if you run tar_make(), tar_call() will return "tar_make".
