Use @inheritParams rlang::args_error_context in your package to document arg and call arguments (or equivalently their prefixed versions error_arg and error_call).

  • arg parameters should be formatted as argument (e.g. using cli's .arg specifier) and included in error messages. See also caller_arg().

  • call parameters should be included in error conditions in a field named call. An easy way to do this is by passing a call argument to abort(). See also local_error_call().


arg, error_arg

An argument name as a string. This argument will be mentioned in error messages as the input that is at the origin of a problem.

call, error_call

The execution environment of a currently running function, e.g. caller_env(). The function will be mentioned in error messages as the source of the error. See the call argument of abort() for more information.
