Inspect signatures of S4 methods.

## Usage

inspect_clmethods(rdo, final = TRUE)

inspect_signatures(rdo, package = NULL, sec = "Methods")

## Arguments

rdo

an Rd object.

package

the name of a package, a character string or NULL.

sec

the name of a section to look into, a character string.

final

If not TRUE insert text with suggestions, otherwise comment the suggestions out.

## Details

Signatures in documentation of S4 classes and methods are stored somewhat differently. inspect_signatures inspects signatures in documentation of methods of a function. inspect_clmethods inspects signatures in documentation of a class.

inspect_signatures was written before inspect_clmethods() and was geared towards using existing code for ordinary functions (mainly parse_usage_text().

If new methods are found, the functions add entries for them in the Rd object rdo.

If rdo documents methods that do not exist, a message inviting the user to remove them manually is printed but the offending entries remain in the object. At the time of writing, R CMD check does not warn about this.
