is_formula() tests if x is a call to ~. is_bare_formula() tests in addition that x does not inherit from anything else than "formula".

is_formula(x, scoped = NULL, lhs = NULL)

is_bare_formula(x, scoped = NULL, lhs = NULL)

## Arguments

x An object to test. A boolean indicating whether the quosure is scoped, that is, has a valid environment attribute. If NULL, the scope is not inspected. A boolean indicating whether the formula or definition has a left-hand side. If NULL, the LHS is not inspected.

## Details

The scoped argument patterns-match on whether the scoped bundled with the quosure is valid or not. Invalid scopes may happen in nested quotations like ~~expr, where the outer quosure is validly scoped but not the inner one. This is because ~ saves the environment when it is evaluated, and quoted formulas are by definition not evaluated.

## Examples

x <- disp ~ am
is_formula(x)#> [1] TRUE
is_formula(~10)#> [1] TRUEis_formula(10)#> [1] FALSE
is_formula(quo(foo))#> [1] TRUEis_bare_formula(quo(foo))#> [1] FALSE
# Note that unevaluated formulas are treated as bare formulas even
# though they don't inherit from "formula":
f <- quote(~foo)
is_bare_formula(f)#> [1] FALSE
# However you can specify scoped if you need the predicate to
# return FALSE for these unevaluated formulas:
is_bare_formula(f, scoped = TRUE)#> [1] FALSEis_bare_formula(eval(f), scoped = TRUE)#> [1] TRUE
