Description

This function and its methods provide facilities for constructing a graph representing which functions call which other functions.

Usage

makeCallGraph(obj, all = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

obj

The name of one or more packages as a string, optionally prefixed with "package:". This can be a vector of package names. Currently the packages should already be on the search path. Other inputs may be supported in the future

all

     plot(ag)
  }

  if(require(Rgraphviz)) {
      # Bigger fonts.
    zz = layoutGraph(gg)
    graph.par(list(nodes = list(fontsize = 48)))
    renderGraph(zz)
  }

    # Two packages
    library(codetools)
    gg = makeCallGraph(c("package:CodeDepends", "package:codetools"))
