#### Testing UseMethod() and even more NextMethod()
####
###-- Group methods
### Arithmetic "Ops" :
">.bar" <- function(...) print(">.bar")
">.foo" <- function(...) print(">.foo")
Ops.foo <- function(...) {
print("Ops.foo")
NextMethod()
}
Ops.bar <- function(...)
print("Ops.bar")
x <- 2:4 ; class(x) <- c("foo", "bar")
y <- 4:2 ; class(y) <- c("bar", "foo")
## The next 4 give a warning each about incompatible methods:
x > y
y < x # should be the same (warning msg not, however)
x == y
x <= y
x > 3 ##[1] ">.foo"
rm(list=">.foo")
x > 3 #-> "Ops.foo" and ">.bar"
### ------------ was ./mode-methods.R till R ver. 1.0.x ----------------
###-- Using Method Dispatch on "mode" etc :
## Tests S3 dispatch with the class attr forced to be data.class
## Not very relevant when S4 methods are around, but kept for historical interest
abc <- function(x, ...) {
cat("abc: Before dispatching; x has class `", class(x), "':", sep="")
str(x)
UseMethod("abc", x) ## UseMethod("abc") (as in S) fails
}
abc.default <- function(x, ...) sys.call()
"abc.(" <- function(x)
cat("'(' method of abc:", deparse(sys.call(sys.parent())),"\n")
abc.expression <- function(x)
cat("'expression' method of abc:", deparse(sys.call(sys.parent())),"\n")
abc(1)
e0 <- expression((x))
e1 <- expression(sin(x))
abc(e0)
abc(e1)
abc(e0[[1]])
abc(e1[[1]])
