package_deps

0th

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identifies mismatches (if any) between local and CRAN versions of each dependent package; an update() method installs outdated or missing packages from CRAN.

local_package_deps extracts dependencies from a local DESCRIPTION file.

dev_package_deps lists the status of the dependencies of a local package.

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

local_package_deps(pkgdir = ".", dependencies = NA)

dev_package_deps(pkgdir = ".", dependencies = NA, repos = getOption("repos"), type = getOption("pkgType"))

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

Arguments
packages

A character vector of package names.

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 "Suggests". NA is shorthand for "Depends", "Imports" and "LinkingTo" and is the default. FALSE is shorthand for no dependencies (i.e. just check this package, not its dependencies).

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.

pkgdir

path to a package directory.

object

A package_deps object.

...

Additional arguments passed to install_packages.

quiet

If TRUE, suppress output.

upgrade

If TRUE, also upgrade any of out date dependencies.

Value

A data.frame with columns:

package The dependent package's name,
installed The currently installed version,
available The version available on CRAN,
diff An integer denoting whether the locally installed version of the package is newer (1), the same (0) or older (-1) than the version currently available on CRAN.
