R Question

error in fread (showProgress is not type integer but type 'logical'. Please report.)

I have used fread to read data. But the error has arisen:

showProgress is not type integer but type 'logical'. Please report.

Here is the reproducible script:

x <- "sgsddsfsfsf"
write.csv2(x,"check.csv", row.names=FALSE)
fread("check.csv", stringsAsFactor=FALSE)

Example of printscreen:

Just fixed. Please try again from dev. Thanks for reporting.

Fixed fread() error occurring for a subset of Windows users: showProgress is not type integer but type logical, #1944 and #1111. Our tests cover this usage (it is just default usage), pass on AppVeyor (Windows), win-builder (Windows) and CRAN's Windows so perhaps it only occurs on a specific and different version of Windows to all those. Thanks to @demydd for reporting. Fixed by using strictly logical type at R level and Rboolean at C level, consistently throughout.
