A. R code
B. text file code
C. binary code
D. both binary and text
This question was posed to me by my school teacher while I was bunking the class.
I’m obligated to ask this question of Textual Data Formats in chapter R – Data Storage, Formats, Objects and Operations of R Programming
To explain I would say: dput is used for outputting a textual representation of an R object. The dump() and dput() functions are useful because the resulting textual format is editable, and in the case of corruption, potentially recoverable.
