quote

logical, indicating whether or not entries should be printed with surrounding quotes.

right

logical, indicating whether or not strings should be right-aligned. The default is right-alignment.

row.names

logical (or character vector), indicating whether (or what) row names should be printed.

Details

This calls format which formats the data frame column-by-column, then converts to a character matrix and dispatches to the print method for matrices.
