View source: R/is_empty.R

is.emptyR Documentation

Empty Value

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

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

Arguments

x

an object to check its emptiness

trim

trim whitespace? (TRUE by default)

...

additional arguments for sapply

Examples

is.empty(NULL) # [1] TRUE
is.empty(c()) # [1] TRUE

is.empty("") # [1] TRUE
is.empty(0) # [1] TRUE
is.empty(0.00) # [1] TRUE
is.empty("    ") # [1] TRUE
is.empty("foobar") # [1] FALSE
is.empty("    ", trim = FALSE) # [1] FALSE
