Hi All:

I am using httr to download files form a service, in this case a .csv file.  When I use httr::content on the result,  I get a message.  Since this will be in a package.  I want to suppress the message,  but haven't figured out how to do so.

The following should reproduce the result:

myURL <- 'https://coastwatch.pfeg.noaa.gov/erddap/griddap/erdMH1sstdmday.csvp?time[0:1:last]'
r1 <- httr::GET(myURL)
junk <- httr::content(r1)

when the last command is run, you get:

Parsed with column specification:
  `time (UTC)` = col_datetime(format = "")

I want to suppress that output.
