microbenchmark_1.4-7 on CRAN

I pushed an updated microbenchmark to CRAN a couple weeks ago. There were two noteworthy changes, thanks to great contributions from @MichaelChirico and @harvey131.

Michael fixed a bug in the check for whether the unit argument was a character string (#9, #10). The prior behavior was an uninformative error.

Harvey added a feature to allow you to use a string for common checks: “equal”, “identical”, and “equivalent” (#16). So you don’t need to create a custom function to use all.equal(), all.equal(..., check.attributes = FALSE), and identical, respectively.

I also converted the unit tests to use RUnit. I also made some changes to the repo, including adding a contributing guide and issue/pull-request templates.

I look forward to your questions and feedback! If you have a question, please ask on Stack Overflow and use the [r] and [microbenchmark] tags. Or you can send an email to the R-SIG-Finance mailing list (you must subscribe to post). Open an issue on GitHub if you find a bug or want to request a feature.

If you love using my open-source work (e.g. quantmod, TTR, xts, IBrokers, microbenchmark, blotter, quantstrat, etc.), you can give back by sponsoring me on GitHub. I truly appreciate anything you’re willing and able to give!
