Thanks Martin! This is exactly what I was looking for. I saw the invocation of muffledWarning in a few places when I googled warning and error handlers but unfortunately I couldn't find explanations and documentation about it. When I invoked muffledWarning in a warning handler for tryCatch, I got a message saying that there's no restart named like that. MuffledWarning is not mentioned in the man page of withCallingHandlers. Also, figuring out basic stuff like that you can add warning and error arguments to tryCatch was also not so easy. Is there a document somewhere that explains handling of errors and warnings in detail?
