Keep your environment clean

A small utility which makes selective objects removing easier.


You can install eponge package from CRAN:

or from GitHub:


Many times we can meet a situation, when we want to clean our environment selectively. Suppose we just wrote a couple of functions, which have the same names as the ones existing in already attached libraries.

Sometimes, we may want to tidy our messy enivironment: we have objects we would like to keep, while in the same time there are many temporary objects created during the exploration.

Package name

Package was originally named sponge, but it was changed in order to avoid name conflict with BioConductor package SPONGE. The current name comes from its French equivalent, éponge (e.pɔ̃ʒ).
