Vectors of storage type “integer” and “double” count as “numeric”, c.f. is.numeric. To explicitly check for real integer or double vectors, see checkInteger, checkIntegerish or checkDouble.

Arguments

x

[any]
Object to check.

lower

[numeric(1)]
Lower value all elements of x must be greater than or equal to.

upper

[numeric(1)]
Upper value all elements of x must be lower than or equal to.

finite

[logical(1)]
Check for only finite values? Default is FALSE.

any.missing

[logical(1)]
Are vectors with missing values allowed? Default is TRUE.

all.missing

[logical(1)]
Are vectors with only missing values allowed? Default is TRUE.

len

[integer(1)]
Exact expected length of x.

min.len

[integer(1)]
Minimal length of x.

max.len

[integer(1)]
Maximal length of x.

unique

[logical(1)]
Must all values be unique? Default is FALSE.

sorted

[logical(1)]
Elements must be sorted in ascending order. Missing values are ignored.

names

[character(1)]
Check for names. See checkNamed for possible values. Default is “any” which performs no check at all. Note that you can use checkSubset to check for a specific set of names.

null.ok

[logical(1)]
If set to TRUE, x may also be NULL. In this case only a type check of x is performed, all additional checks are disabled.

.var.name

[character(1)]
Name of the checked object to print in assertions. Defaults to the heuristic implemented in vname.

add

[AssertCollection]
Collection to store assertion messages. See AssertCollection.

info

[character(1)]
Extra information to be included in the message for the testthat reporter. See expect_that.

label

[character(1)]
Name of the checked object to print in messages. Defaults to the heuristic implemented in vname.

Value

Depending on the function prefix: If the check is successful, the functions assertNumeric/assert_numeric return x invisibly, whereas checkNumeric/check_numeric and testNumeric/test_numeric return TRUE. If the check is not successful, assertNumeric/assert_numeric throws an error message, testNumeric/test_numeric returns FALSE, and checkNumeric returns a string with the error message. The function expect_numeric always returns an expectation.

Details

This function does not distinguish between NA, NA_integer_, NA_real_, NA_complex_ NA_character_ and NaN.
