Defunct {base}R Documentation

Marking Objects as Defunct


When a function is removed from R it should be replaced by a function which calls .Defunct.


.Defunct(new, package = NULL, msg)


new character string: A suggestion for a replacement function.
package character string: The package to be used when suggesting where the defunct function might be listed.
msg character string: A message to be printed, if missing a default message is used.


.Defunct is called from defunct functions. Functions should be listed in help("pkg-defunct") for an appropriate pkg, including base.
