How to check a loaded package version in R

In this tutorial, we are going to learn about how to check the loaded package version currently installed in R.

Using the package.version() function

In the R language, we have a built-in package.version() function by using that we can check the version number of installed packages.

The package.version() function takes the package name as an argument and returns the version number of it.

Here is an example:

packageVersion("snow")

Output:

[1] ‘0.4.3’

You can also check the installed R version in your system like this:

R --version
