find_root_file() is a wrapper around find_root() that appends an arbitrary number of path components to the root using base::file.path().

find_root_file(..., criterion, path = ".")

find_rstudio_root_file(..., path = ".")

find_package_root_file(..., path = ".")

find_remake_root_file(..., path = ".")

find_testthat_root_file(..., path = ".")



Further path components passed to file.path(). All arguments must be the same length or length one.


A criterion, one of the predefined criteria or created by root_criterion(). Will be coerced using as_root_criterion().


The start directory.


The normalized path of the root as specified by the search criteria, with the additional path components appended. Throws an error if no root is found.


This function operates on the notion of relative paths. The ... argument is expected to contain a path relative to the root. If the first path component passed to ... is already an absolute path, the criterion and path arguments are ignored, and ... is forwarded to file.path().
