Look for an Argument in the Call

Share:

Description

Returns TRUE if name corresponds to an argument in the call, either a formal argument to the function, or a component of ..., and FALSE otherwise.

Usage

1

Arguments

name

The name of a potential argument, as an unquoted name or character string.

Details

The expression hasArg(x), for example, is similar to !missing(x), with two exceptions. First, hasArg will look for an argument named x in the call if x is not a formal argument to the calling function, but ... is. Second, hasArg never generates an error if given a name as an argument, whereas missing(x) generates an error if x is not a formal argument.

Value

Always TRUE or FALSE as described above.

ftest <- function(x1, ...) c(hasArg(x1), hasArg("y2"))

ftest(1) ## c(TRUE, FALSE)
ftest(1, 2)  ## c(TRUE, FALSE)
ftest(y2 = 2)   ## c(FALSE, TRUE)
ftest(y = 2)    ## c(FALSE, FALSE) (no partial matching)
ftest(y2 = 2, x = 1)  ## c(TRUE, TRUE) partial match x1
