object_to_string: Convert R objects to/from strings

Description Usage Arguments Examples

View source: R/serialisation.R

Description

Serialise/deserialise an R object into a string. This is a very thin wrapper around the existing R functions serialize and rawToChar. This is useful to encode arbitrary R objects as string to then save in Redis (which expects a string).

Arguments

obj

An R object to convert into a string

str

A string to convert into an R object

xdr

Use the big-endian representation? Unlike, serialize this is disabled here by default as it is a bit faster (~ 20 microsecond roundtrip for a serialization of 100 doubles)

bin

A binary vector to convert back to an R object
