log_print function prints an object to the currently opened log.
log_print(x, ..., console = TRUE, blank_after = NULL, msg = FALSE, hide_notes = FALSE) put(x, ..., console = TRUE, blank_after = NULL, msg = FALSE, hide_notes = FALSE) sep(x, console = TRUE) log_hook(x)
The object to print.
Any parameters to pass to the print function.
Whether or not to print to the console. Valid values are TRUE and FALSE. Default is TRUE.
Whether or not to print a blank line following the printed object. The blank line helps readability of the log. Valid values are TRUE and FALSE. Default is TRUE.
Whether to print the object to the msg log. This parameter is intended to be used internally. Value values are TRUE and FALSE. The default value is FALSE.
If notes are on, this parameter gives you the option of not printing notes for a particular log entry. Default is FALSE, meaning notes will be displayed. Used internally.
The object, invisibly
The log is initialized with
log_open. Once the log is open, objects
like variables and data frames can be printed to the log to monitor execution
of your script. If working interactively, the function will print both to
the log and to the console. The
log_print function is useful when
writing and debugging batch scripts, and in situations where some record
of a scripts' execution is required.
If requested in the
will print a note after each call. The note will contain a date-time stamp
and elapsed time since the last call to
log_print. When printing
a data frame, the
log_print function will also print the number
and rows and column in the data frame. These counts may also be useful
Notes may be turned off either by setting the
log_open to FALSE, or by setting the global option "logr.notes"
put function is a shorthand alias for
log_print. You can
put anywhere you would use
log_print. The functionality
sep function is also a shorthand alias for
except it will print a separator before and after the printed text. This
function is intended for documentation purposes, and you can use it
to help organize your log into sections.
log_hook function is for other packages that wish to
integrate with logr. The function prints to the log only if
autolog is enabled. It will not print to the console.
