fwrite() not found in data.table package

Matthew Keller
Hi all,

I used to use fwrite() function in data.table but I cannot get it to work
now. The function is not in the data.table package, even though a help page
exists for it. My session info is below. Any ideas on how to get fwrite()
to work would be much appreciated. Thanks!

You are asking about (a) a contributed package (b) for a package version that is not in CRAN and (c) an R version that is outdated, which stretches the definition of "on topic" here. Since that function does not appear to have been removed from that package (I am not installing a development version to test if it is broken for your benefit), I will throw out a guess that if you update R to 3.4.1 or 3.4.2 then things might start working. If not, I suggest you use the CRAN version of the package and create a reproducible example (check it with package reprex) and try again here, or ask one of the maintainers of that package.

Thanks Jeff!

It turns out that my problem was that I tried to install the newest
data.table package while the old data.table package was loaded in R. Full
instructions for installing data.table are here:
