Deprecated {base}R Documentation

Marking Objects as Deprecated


When an object is about removed from R it is first deprecated and should include a call to .Deprecated.


.Deprecated(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 deprecated function might be listed.
msg character string: A message to be printed, if missing a default message is used.


.Deprecated("<new name>") is called from deprecated functions. The original help page for these functions is often available at help("oldName-deprecated") (note the quotes). Functions should be listed in help("pkg-deprecated") for an appropriate pkg, including base.
