In this article, we are going to discuss how to suppress the output of a command in R programming language.

Suppressing means making the output invisible. We can make the output should not appear. By using invisible() function we can suppress the output.

Syntax:

invisible(variable_name)

Where variable_name is the name of the created variable

Example: R program to create a variable and make suppress

R




# create a string variable
a="hello geeks"
  
# suppress the output by using 
# invisible function
invisible(a)


Example: R program to create a vector, list, and dataframe and suppress the output

R




# create a vector of subjects
a=c("c","c++","java")
  
# suppress the vector output by using 
# invisible function
invisible(a)
  
# create a dataframe of subjects
b=data.frame("c","c++","java")
  
# suppress the dataframe output by using
# invisible function
invisible(b)
  
# create a list of subjects
c=list("c","c++","java")
  
# suppress the listoutput by using invisible 
# function
invisible(c)


For both the examples, no output will be generated, since the entire aim of this article is to suppress output.
