Find the full file names of files in modules

box::file(..., module = current_module())



character vectors of files or subdirectories inside a module; if none is given, return the root directory of the module


a module environment (default: current module)


A character vector containing the absolute paths to the files specified in ....


If called from outside a module, the current working directory is used.

This function is similar to system.file for packages. Its semantics differ in the presence of non-existent files: box::file always returns the requested paths, even for non-existent files; whereas system.file returns empty strings for non-existent files, or fails (if requested via the argument mustWork = TRUE).
