This attempts to unload and reload an installed package. If the package is not loaded already, it does nothing. It's not always possible to cleanly unload a package: see the caveats in unload() for some of the potential failure points. If in doubt, restart R and reload the package with library().

reload(pkg = ".", quiet = FALSE)

Arguments

pkg

package description, can be path or package name. See as.package() for more information

quiet

if TRUE suppresses output from this function.

See also

load_all() to load a package for interactive development.

Examples

# NOT RUN {
# Reload package that is in current directory
reload(".")

# Reload package that is in ./ggplot2/
reload("ggplot2/")

# Can use inst() to find the package path
# This will reload the installed ggplot2 package
reload(pkgload::inst("ggplot2"))
# }
