Description Usage Arguments 3rd edition Examples

View source: R/context.R

Description

[Superseded]

Use of context() is no longer recommended. Instead omit it, and messages will use the name of the file instead. This ensures that the context and test file name are always in sync.

A context defines a set of tests that test related functionality. Usually you will have one context per file, but you may have multiple contexts in a single file if you so choose.

Usage

1
context(desc)

Arguments

desc

description of context. Should start with a capital letter.

3rd edition

[Deprecated]

context() is deprecated in the third edition, and the equivalent information is instead recorded by the test file name.

Examples

1
2
context("String processing")
context("Remote procedure calls")
