# Set the SPARK_HOME environment variable

Set the SPARK_HOME environment variable. This slightly speeds up some operations, including the connection time.

spark_home_set(path = NULL, ...)

## Arguments

 path A string containing the path to the installation location of Spark. If NULL, the path to the most latest Spark/Hadoop versions is used. ... Additional parameters not currently used.

## Value

The function is mostly invoked for the side-effect of setting the SPARK_HOME environment variable. It also returns TRUE if the environment was successfully set, and FALSE otherwise.

## Examples

# NOT RUN {
# Not run due to side-effects
spark_home_set()
# }
