Return Values and Related Methods for unitize Functions

unitize and related functions are run primarily for the interactive environment they provide and for their side effects (updating stored unitizer objects), but the return values may be useful under some circumstances if you need to retrieve test status, user selections, etc..

# S3 method for unitizer_result
print(x, ...)

# S3 method for unitizer_results print(x, ...)


the object to print


extra arguments for print generic


unitize and review return a unitizer_result S3 object. This is a data frame that contains details about the status of each test. unitize_dir returns a unitize_results S3 object, which is a list of unitize_result objects.

Both unitize_results and unitize_result have print methods documented here. In addition to the print methods, both of the result objects have get_unitizer methods so that you can retrieve the stored unitizer objects.

Please note that with unitize_dir you can re-review a single unitizer several times during during a single call to unitize_dir. This is to allow you to re-evaluate specific unitizers easily without having to re-run the entire directory again. Unfortunately, as a result of this feature, the return values of unitize_dir can be misleading because they only report the result of the last review cycle.

Additionally, unitize_dir will report user selections during the last review even if in the end the user chose not to save the modified unitizer. You will be alerted to this by an onscreen message from the print method (this is tracked in the "updated" attribute of the unitizer_result object). Finally, if in the last iteration before exit you did not save the unitizer, but you did save it in previous review cycles in the same unitize_dir call, the displayed selections and test outcomes will correspond to the last unsaved iteration, not the one that was saved. You will be alerted to this by an on-screen message (this is tracked through the "updated.at.least.once" attribute of the unitizer_result object).
