Search for Masked Objects on the Search Path
conflicts reports on objects that exist with the same name in
two or more places on the
search path, usually because
an object in the user's workspace or a package is masking a system
object of the same name. This helps discover unintentional masking.
conflicts(where = search(), detail = FALSE)
- A subset of the search path, by default the whole search path.
TRUE, give the masked or masking functions for all members of the search path.
If detail = FALSE, a character vector of masked objects.
If detail = TRUE, a list of character vectors giving the masked or
masking objects in that member of the search path. Empty vectors are
lm <- 1:3 conflicts(, TRUE) ## gives something like # $.GlobalEnv #  "lm" # # $package:base #  "lm" ## Remove things from your "workspace" that mask others: remove(list = conflicts(detail = TRUE)$.GlobalEnv)
