One of the most frustrating parts of R CMD check is getting all of your examples to pass - whenever one fails you need to fix the problem and then restart the whole process. This function makes it a little easier by making it possible to run all examples from an R function.

run_examples(pkg = ".", start = NULL, show = TRUE, test = FALSE,
  run = TRUE, fresh = FALSE, document = TRUE)

Arguments

pkg

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

start

Where to start running the examples: this can either be the name of Rd file to start with (with or without extensions), or a topic name. If omitted, will start with the (lexicographically) first file. This is useful if you have a lot of examples and don't want to rerun them every time you fix a problem.

show

DEPRECATED.

test

if TRUE, code in \donttest{} will be commented out. If FALSE, code in \testonly{} will be commented out.

run

if TRUE, code in \dontrun{} will be commented out.

fresh

if TRUE, will be run in a fresh R session. This has the advantage that there's no way the examples can depend on anything in the current session, but interactive code (like browser()) won't work.

document

if TRUE, document() will be run to ensure examples are updated before running them.
