package_deps

Percentile

Find all dependencies of a CRAN or dev package.

Find all the dependencies of a package and determine whether they are ahead or behind CRAN. A print() method identifies mismatches (if any) between local and CRAN versions of each dependent package; an update() method installs outdated or missing packages from CRAN.

Usage
package_deps(pkg, dependencies = NA, repos = getOption("repos"),
  type = getOption("pkgType"))

dev_package_deps(pkg = ".", dependencies = NA, repos = getOption("repos"), type = getOption("pkgType"), force_deps = FALSE, quiet = FALSE)

## S3 method for class 'package_deps': update(object, ..., quiet = FALSE, upgrade = TRUE)

Arguments
pkg
A character vector of package names. If missing, defaults to the name of the package in the current directory.
dependencies
Which dependencies do you want to check? Can be a character vector (selecting from "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo", "Suggests", or "Enhances"), or a logical vector.

TRUE is shorthand for "Depends", "Imports", "LinkingTo" and "Sugg

repos
A character vector giving repositories to use.
type
Type of package to update. If "both", will switch automatically to "binary" to avoid interactive prompts during package installation.
force_deps
whether to force installation of dependencies even if their SHA1 reference hasn't changed from the currently installed version.
quiet
If TRUE, suppress output.
object
A package_deps object.
...
Additional arguments passed to install_packages.
upgrade
If TRUE, also upgrade any of out date dependencies.
