Reverse Engineers Regular Expression Patterns for R Objects

Reverse engineer a regular expression pattern for the characters contained in an R object. Individual characters can be categorised into digits, letters, punctuation or spaces and encoded into run-lengths. This can be used to summarise the structure of a dataset or identify non-standard entries. Many non-character inputs such as numeric vectors and data frames are supported.
