How to get the list of packages installed in base R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

There is no limitation to installation of packages in R but base R also has some packages associated to it. Hence, there is no need to install or load them in R console every time. We can directly use any of the base R package functions to perform the analysis. If we want to get the list of these package then we can use the code as shown below:

Example

> installed.packages(priority="base")

Output

Package LibPath Version Priority
base "base" "C:/Program Files/R/R-4.0.2/library" "4.0.2" "base"
