deparseOpts {base}R Documentation

Options for Expression Deparsing

Description

Process the deparsing options for deparse, dput and dump.

Usage

.deparseOpts(control)

Arguments

control character vector of deparsing options.

Details

This is called by deparse, dput and dump to process their control argument.

The control argument is a vector containing zero or more of the following strings. Partial string matching is used.

keepInteger
Surround integer vectors by as.integer(), so they are not converted to floating point when re-parsed.
quoteExpressions
Surround expressions with quote(), so they are not evaluated when re-parsed.
showAttributes
If the object has attributes (other than a source attribute), use structure() to display them as well as the object value. This is the default for deparse and dput.
useSource
If the object has a source attribute, display that instead of deparsing the object. Currently only applies to function definitions.
warnIncomplete
Some exotic objects such as environments, external pointers, etc. can not be deparsed properly. This option causes a warning to be issued if any of those may give problems.
all
An abbreviated way to specify all of the options listed above. May not be used with other options. This is the default for dump.
delayPromises
Deparse promises in the form <promise: expression> rather than evaluating them. The value and the environment of the promise will not be shown and the deparsed code cannot be sourced.

For the most readable (but perhaps incomplete) display, use control = NULL. This displays the object's value, but not its attributes. The default is to display the attributes as well, but not to use any of the other options to make the result parseable.

Using control = "all" comes closest to making deparse() an inverse of parse(). However, not all objects are deparseable even with this option. A warning will be issued if the function recognizes that it is being asked to do the impossible.

Value

A numerical value corresponding to the options selected.
