Details

The 'v' in VComments stands for 'verbose', because of its relationship to the Verbose class.

Here is a list of VComments and the R code that replaces each of them by the compiler:

Constructors

  • \#V0\#[<args>] - NullVerbose(<args>)

  • \#V1\#[<args>] - Verbose(<args>)

Controls

  • \#V=\#[<variable>] - Sets the name of the <verbose> object. Default is 'verbose'.

  • \#V\^\#<threshold> - setThreshold(<verbose>, <threshold>)

  • \#V?\#<expression> - if (isVisible(<verbose>)) { <expression> }

  • \#V@\#<level> - setDefaultLevel(<verbose>, <level>)

  • \#Vm\#<method> <args> - <method>(<verbose>, <args>)

Enters and exits

  • \#V+\#[<message>] - enter(<verbose>, <message>)

  • \#V-\#[<message>] - exit(<verbose>, <message>)

  • \#V!\#[<message>] - pushState(<verbose>) on.exit(popState(<verbose>)) If <message>, enter(<verbose>, <message>)

Simple output

  • \#Vn\#<ignored> - newline(<verbose>)

  • \#Vr\#<ignored> - ruler(<verbose>)

  • \#Vt\#<ignored> - timestamp(<verbose>)

  • \#Vw\#[<title>] - warnings(<verbose>, <title>)

Output messages

  • \#Vc\#[<message>] - cat(<verbose>, <message>)

  • \#Ve\#<expression> - eval(<verbose>, <expression>)

  • \#Vh\#<message> - header(<verbose>, <message>)

  • \#Vp\#<object> - print(<verbose>, <object>)

  • \#Vs\#<object> - summary(<verbose>, <object>)

  • \#Vz\#<object> - str(<verbose>, <object>)

Examples

# NOT RUN {
filename <- system.file("data-ex/exampleVComments.R", package="R.utils")
lines <- readLines(filename)

cat("Code before preprocessing:\n")
displayCode(code=lines, pager="console")

lines <- VComments$compile(lines)

cat("Code after preprocessing:\n")
displayCode(code=lines, pager="console")
# }
