lvl_up_r: Level up R

lvl_up_rR Documentation

Level up R


Checks whether the installed R version is >= a cached reference version. Intended to level up the R version in use between multiple users of the same code (e.g. contributors to a specific R project).


lvl_up_r(path_min_vrsn, update_min_vrsn = FALSE)



Path to the cached R version string.


Whether or not to overwrite path_min_vrsn with the currently installed R version string iff the latter is higher than the former.


If the file path_min_vrsn exists, it is checked whether the installed R version is greater than or equal to the version number stored in that file, and if not, an alert is displayed.

If update_min_vrsn is set to TRUE and the file path_min_vrsn doesn't exist or contains an R version string that's lower than the currently installed version of R, path_min_vrsn is overwritten with the currently installed R version string.


Currently installed R version as a numeric version, invisibly.
