[R-SIG-Finance] How to suppress getSymbols error message

Hi all,

I am using getSymbols to with the following options:


The problem is that when it cannot find the file locally it gives an error
message like the following:

file  abcd.csv does not exist  in   ....skipping ..

It is coming from the following lines of source code:

 if(!file.exists(sym.file)) {
      cat("\nfile ",paste(Symbols[[i]],extension,sep='.')," does not exist ",
          "in ",dir,"....skipping\n")

If would have been nice if the cat statement above was under a if (verbose)


Anyway to suppress this message ? I have tried using try statement too.
Still no luck.

Thanks in advance.
