scriptexec

Run complex native scripts with a single command, similar to system commands.

Overview

The purpose of the scriptexec package is to enable quick and easy way to execute native scripts.

Usage

Simply load the library and invoke the execute

library(scriptexec)

# execute script text
output <- scriptexec::execute("echo command1\necho command2")
expect_equal(output$status, 0)
expect_equal(grepl("command1", output$output), TRUE)
expect_equal(grepl("command2", output$output), TRUE)

if (.Platform$OS.type == "windows") {
    ls_command <- "dir"
} else {
    ls_command <- "ls"
}
output <- scriptexec::execute(c("echo user home:", ls_command))
expect_equal(output$status, 0)

# execute multiple commands as a script
output <- scriptexec::execute(c("cd", "echo test"))
expect_equal(output$status, 0)

# pass arguments (later defined as ARG1, ARG2, ...) and env vars
if (.Platform$OS.type == "windows") {
    command <- "echo %ARG1% %ARG2% %MYENV%"
} else {
    command <- "echo $ARG1 $ARG2 $MYENV"
}
output <- scriptexec::execute(command, args = c("TEST1", "TEST2"), env = c("MYENV=TEST3"))
expect_equal(output$status, 0)
expect_equal(grepl("TEST1 TEST2 TEST3", output$output), TRUE)

# non zero status code is returned in case of errors
expect_warning(output <- scriptexec::execute("exit 1"))
expect_equal(output$status, 1)

# do not wait for command to finish
output <- scriptexec::execute("echo my really long task", wait = FALSE)
expect_equal(output$status, -1)
