Additional information





The package currently support the following further R options, which you can set either in your R profile file or a script via options:


This boolean flag can be set to FALSE to reduce the console output of the package operations. Usually you want to see this output in interactive work, but when you use the package in e.g. knitr documents, it clutters the resulting document too much.


If this boolean flag is enabled, the package checks your registry file dir (and related user-defined directories) quite strictly to be POSIX compliant. Usually this is a good idea, you do not want to have strange chars in your file paths, as this might results in problems when these paths get passed to the scheduler or other command-line tools that the package interoperates with. But on some OS this check might be too strict and cause problems. Setting the flag to FALSE allows to disable the check entirely. The default is FALSE on Windows systems and TRUE else.
