### collect_rda_objects.R
### -------------------------------------------------------------------------
###
### This script performs STEP 2 of the "Find and update objects" procedure
### described in the README file located in the same folder.
###
### Before you run this script, make sure you performed STEP 1, that is, you
### need to generate input file RDA_FILES. This can be achieved with
### something like:
###
###   cd <dir/you/want/to/search>
###   find . -type d -name '.git' -prune -o -type f -print | \
###       grep -Ei '\.(rda|RData)$' >RDA_FILES
###
### See README file for more information.
###
### Then to run STEP 2 in "batch" mode:
###
###   cd <dir/you/want/to/search>  # RDA_FILES file should be here
###   R CMD BATCH collect_rda_objects.R >collect_rda_objects.log 2>&1 &
###
### This can take a couple of hours to complete...
###
### The output of STEP 2 is a file created in the current directory and named
### RDA_OBJECTS. It has 1 line per serialized object and the 4 following
### fields (separated by tabs):
###   1. Path to rda file (as found in input file RDA_FILES).
###   2. Name of object in rda file.
###   3. Class of object in rda file.
###   4. Package where class of object is defined.
