archivePackages

Move older copies of packages to an archive

Description

The function moves older versions of packages into a CRAN-style archive folder.

Usage

archivePackages(
  repopath = getOption("dratRepo", "~/git/drat"),
  type = c("source", "binary", "mac.binary", "mac.binary.el-capitan",
    "mac.binary.mavericks", "win.binary", "both"),
  pkg,
  version = getRversion()
)

archivePackagesForAllRversions(
  repopath = getOption("dratRepo", "~/git/drat"),
  type = c("source", "binary", "mac.binary", "mac.binary.el-capitan",
    "mac.binary.mavericks", "win.binary", "both"),
  pkg
)

Arguments

Argument Description
repopath Character variable with the path to the repo; defaults to the value of the “dratRepo” option with “"~/git/drat"” as fallback
type Character variable for the type of repository, so far “source”, “binary”, “win.binary”, “mac.binary”, “mac.binary.mavericks”, “mac.binary.el-capitan” or “both”
pkg Optional character variable specifying a package name(s), whose older versions should be archived. If missing (the default), archiving is performed on all packages.
version R version information in the format X.Y or X.Y.Z. Only used, if archiving binary packages. (default: version = getRversion()). If version = NA, all available R versions will be used. If version = NULL, this defaults to getRversion().
