This is mainly useful for testing, since makes it possible to refer to local and remote tables using exactly the same syntax.

src_local(tbl, pkg = NULL, env = NULL)

src_df(pkg = NULL, env = NULL)



name of the function used to generate tbl objects

pkg, env

Either the name of a package or an environment object in which to look for objects.


Generally, src_local() should not be called directly, but instead one of the constructors should be used.


if (require("Lahman")) { batting_df <- tbl(src_df("Lahman"), "Batting") }
