Transfer a file from iRODS to the local storage with iget() or read an R object from an RDS file in iRODS with ireadRDS() (see readRDS()).

Usage

iget(
  logical_path,
  local_path,
  offset = 0,
  count = 2000L,
  verbose = FALSE,
  overwrite = FALSE
)

ireadRDS(
  logical_path,
  offset = 0,
  count = 2000L,
  verbose = FALSE,
  overwrite = FALSE
)

Arguments

logical_path

Source path in iRODS.

local_path

Destination path in local storage. By default, the basename of the logical path; the file will be stored in the current directory (see getwd()).

offset

Offset in bytes into the data object. Defaults to 0.

count

Maximum number of bytes to write. Defaults to 2000.

verbose

Whether information should be printed about the HTTP request and response.

overwrite

Whether the local file should be overwritten if it exists. Defaults to FALSE.

Value

The R object in case of ireadRDS(), invisibly NULL in case of iget().

The R object in case of ireadRDS(), invisibly NULL in case of iget().

iput() for sending files, isaveRDS() for sending R objects to iRODS, saveRDS() for an R equivalent.
