Unload a package
- A package name, which may be specified with or without quotes.
Unloads a package. This is just a wrapper for the
detach function. However, the
package argument is just the name of the package (rather than the longer string that is required by the
detach function), and -- like the
library function -- can be specified without quote marks. The
unlibrary function does not unload dependencies, only the named package.
The name "unlibrary" is a bit of an abuse of both R terminology (in which one has a library of packages) and the English language, but I think it helps convey that the goal of the
unlibrary function is to do the opposite of what the
library function does.
This package is under development, and has been released only due to teaching constraints. Until this notice disappears from the help files, you should assume that everything in the package is subject to change. Backwards compatibility is NOT guaranteed. Functions may be deleted in future versions and new syntax may be inconsistent with earlier versions. For the moment at least, this package should be treated with extreme caution.
