Versioned

Class "Versioned"

Use this class as a `superclass' for classes requiring information about versions.

Methods

The following are defined; package developers may write additional methods.

new("Versioned", ..., versions=list())
Create a new Versioned-class instance, perhaps with additional named version elements (the contents of versions) added. Named elements of versions are character strings that can be coerced using package_version, or package_version instances.
classVersion(object)
Obtain version information about instance object. See classVersion.
classVersion(object) <- value
Set version information on instance object to value; useful when object is an instance of a class that contains VersionClass. See classVersion.
classVersion(object)["id"] <- value
Create or update version information "id" on instance object to value; useful when object is an instance of a class that contains VersionClass. See classVersion.
show(object)
Default method returns invisible, to avoid printing confusing information when your own class does not have a show method defined. Use classVersion(object) to get or set version information.
