Function in R (Example) | Extract System & User Information


On this page, I’ll explain how to return system and user information using the function in R programming.

The content of the page looks as follows:

It’s time to dive into the example.


Example: Get System & User Information Using Function

The following R syntax shows how to extract information about the operating system and the user by applying the function in R.

Have a look at the following R code:                     # Apply function
#           sysname           release           version          nodename           machine             login              user    effective_user 
#         "Windows"          "10 x64"     "build 19043" "DESKTOP-FTRQE9D"          "x86-64"           "Joach"           "Joach"           "Joach"

As you can see, the previous R code has returned information such as the name of the system (i.e. Windows) and the username (i.e. Joach) to the RStudio console.
