Example text

Txt in our working directory. exists() takes only a character string input, which is a filename or a path and filename. If it is simply a filename, it checks only the working directory. This working directory is verified by the getwd() function. If a check is desired for a file in another directory, this may be done by giving a full file path inside the string. This function returns a logical value of either TRUE or FALSE. Depending on user permissions for a particular file, you may not get the expected result for a particular file.

After creating the new variable, when we type plot at the console, R returns the numeric value rather than the function because the assignment, plot <- 5, occurs in the global environment, which R searches before it checks the environments of different packages. The search() function returns the environments in the order that R searches them. GlobalEnv), then in the package Hmisc , and so on until it reaches the base package. We can see the current environment by again using the environment() function.

Then research can be done on how to be more efficient in just that spot. In this chapter, we use the Hmisc R package (Harrell Jr, 2016). 1") library(Hmisc) options(width = 70) # only 70 characters per line Components of a Function With some exceptions, most functions in R have three components : • Formals: The arguments, or inputs, to the function • Body: The commands that process the input • Environment: The location or context of a function, which determines where it looks for variables Each can be examined using dedicated functions.
