• expect_identical tests with identical()

  • expect_equal tests with all.equal()

  • expect_setequal ignores order and duplicates

  • expect_equivalent tests with all.equal() and check.attributes = FALSE

  • expect_reference tests if two symbols point to the same underlying object in memory (requires rlang 1.2.9000 or greater)

expect_equal(object, expected, ..., info = NULL, label = NULL,
  expected.label = NULL)

expect_setequal(object, expected)

expect_equivalent(object, expected, ..., info = NULL, label = NULL,
  expected.label = NULL)

expect_identical(object, expected, info = NULL, label = NULL,
  expected.label = NULL)

expect_identical(object, expected, info = NULL, label = NULL,
  expected.label = NULL)

expect_reference(object, expected, info = NULL, label = NULL,
  expected.label = NULL)

Arguments

object

object to test

expected

Expected value

...

other values passed to all.equal()

info

extra information to be included in the message (useful when writing tests in loops).

label

object label. When NULL, computed from deparsed object.

expected.label

Equivalent of label for shortcut form.

Examples

a <- 10 expect_equal(a, 10) # Use expect_equal() when testing for numeric equality sqrt(2) ^ 2 - 1
#> [1] 1
expect_equal(sqrt(2) ^ 2, 2) # Neither of these forms take floating point representation errors into # account
# NOT RUN { expect_true(sqrt(2) ^ 2 == 2) expect_identical(sqrt(2) ^ 2, 2) # }
# You can pass on additional arguments to all.equal:
# NOT RUN { # Test the ABSOLUTE difference is within .002 expect_equal(10.01, 10, tolerance = .002, scale = 1) # }
# Test the RELATIVE difference is within .002 x <- 10 expect_equal(10.01, expected = x, tolerance = 0.002, scale = x) # expect_equivalent ignores attributes a <- b <- 1:3 names(b) <- letters[1:3] expect_equivalent(a, b)
