Many package updates on CRAN

Over the last week or two I’ve been pushing all my packages to CRAN.

pathological (for working with file paths), runittotestthat (for converting RUnit tests to testthat tests), and rebus (formerly regex, for building regular expressions in a human readable way) all make their CRAN debuts.

assertive, for run-time testing your code has more checks for the state of your R setup (is_r_devel, is_rstudio, r_has_png_capability, and many more), checks for the state of your variables (are_same_length, etc.), and utilities (dont_stop).

sig (for checking that your function signatures are sensible) now works with primitive functions too.

learningr (to accompany the book) has a reference URL fix but is otherwise the same.

I encourage you to take a look at some or all of them, and give me feedback.

    The packages would be more compelling if you included some more info in the README. e.g. what are the most important operations that pathological provides? How do you use reunitottestthat to convert a package?

      I agree that my package documentation has been a bit patchy (the function-level stuff is mostly OK), and improving it is high on my TODO list.

      I’ve now written a proper README.md for runittotestthat, along with an ?runittotestthat help page, and added some more examples.

      Better docs for other packages to follow when I get chance.
