These helpers provide useful wrappers around cat(): most importantly they all set sep = "", and cat_line() automatically adds a newline.

cat_line(..., col = NULL, background_col = NULL, file = stdout())

cat_bullet(
  ...,
  col = NULL,
  background_col = NULL,
  bullet = "bullet",

  file = stdout()
)

cat_boxx(..., file = stdout())

cat_rule(..., file = stdout())

cat_print(x, file = "")
