Unload and reload package.

This attempts to unload and reload an installed package. If the package is not loaded already, it does nothing. It's not always possible to cleanly unload a package: see the caveats in unload() for some of the potential failure points. If in doubt, restart R and reload the package with library().

Usage
reload(pkg = ".", quiet = FALSE)
Arguments
pkg

The package to use, can be a file path to the package or a package object. See as.package() for more information.

quiet

if TRUE suppresses output from this function.

reload(pkgload::inst("ggplot2"))
# }
