local.only
Logical, try to get most recent list from the Bioconductor master or use file on local disk only.
Details

This sets the option "BioC_mirror": it is used before a call to setRepositories. The out-of-the-box default for that option is NULL, which currently corresponds to the mirror https://bioconductor.org.

The Bioconductor (World-wide) mirror is a network of mirrors providing reliable world-wide access; other mirrors may provide faster access on a geographically local scale.

ind chooses a row in R_HOME/doc/BioC_mirrors.csv, by number.

Value

  • None: this function is invoked for its side effect of updating options("BioC_mirror").
