autoload creates a promise-to-evaluate
autoloader and stores it with name
.AutoloadEnv environment. When R attempts to evaluate
autoloader is run, the package is loaded and
name is re-evaluated in the new package's environment. The result is that R behaves as if
file was loaded but it does not occupy memory.
.Autoloaded contains the names of the packages for which autoloading has been promised.
autoload(name, package, reset = FALSE, ...) autoloader(name, package, ...) .AutoloadEnv .Autoloaded
This function is invoked for its side-effect. It has no return value.
