Arguments

f

A function object

Details

A closure is considered a standard S3 generic if the first expression in its body calls UseMethod. Functions which perform operations before calling UseMethod will not be considered “standard” S3 generics.

Value

If f is an S3 generic, a logical vector containing TRUE with the name of the S3 generic (the string passed to UseMethod). Otherwise, FALSE (unnamed).
