isS3stdGeneric {utils} R Documentation

Check if a Function Acts as an S3 Generic

Description

Determines whether f acts as a standard S3-style generic function.

Usage

isS3stdGeneric(f)


Arguments

 f a function object

Details

A closure is considered a standard S3 generic if the first expression in its body calls UseMethod. Functions which perform operations before calling UseMethod will not be considered “standard” S3 generics.

If f is currently being traced, i.e., inheriting from class "traceable", the definition of the original untraced version of the function is used instead.

Value

If f is an S3 generic, a logical containing TRUE with the name of the S3 generic (the string passed to UseMethod). Otherwise, FALSE (unnamed).
