# Temporary environment

#### 2021-10-11

‘svMisc’ attaches SciViews:TempEnv at the fore last position in the search path, so that its content is accessible from any loaded R package (except ‘base’). This environment is a convenient place where temporary items that you do not want to see in the global environment, for instance, variables related to GUI (Graphical User Interface) and that are typically a nonsense to save() and reload() in the global environment.

TODO: show a couple of case where it is useful.

• temp_env() get the environment itself,
• assign_temp(), add_temp(), and change_temp() place or modify data in the temporary environment,
• rm_temp() or delete_temp() eliminate variables from there,
• exists_temp() tests for the existence of objects it this environment,
• get_temp() retrieves objects from there.
