Compare session information from two sources


session_diff(old = "local", new = "clipboard", ...)


old, new

A session_info object (the return value of session_info()), or a pointer to session_info() output. See details below.


Passed to any new session_info() calls.


Various way to specify old and new:

  • A session_info object.

  • "local" runs session_info() in the current session, and uses its output.

  • "clipboard" takes the session info from the system clipboard. If the clipboard contains a URL, it is followed to download the session info.

  • A URL starting with http:// or https://. session_diff searches the HTML (or text) page for the session info header to find the session info.
