This standardises names with the legacy approach that was used in tidyverse packages (such as tibble, tidyr, and readxl) before vec_as_names() was implemented. This tool is meant to help transitioning to the new name repairing standard and will be deprecated and removed from the package some time in the future.

vec_as_names_legacy(names, prefix = "V", sep = "")

Arguments

names

A character vector.

prefix, sep

Prefix and separator for repaired names.

Examples

if (rlang::is_installed("tibble")) { library(tibble) # Names repair is turned off by default in tibble: try(tibble(a = 1, a = 2)) # You can turn it on by supplying a repair method: tibble(a = 1, a = 2, .name_repair = "universal") # If you prefer the legacy method, use `vec_as_names_legacy()`: tibble(a = 1, a = 2, .name_repair = vec_as_names_legacy) }
