Dear expRts,
I have a character string, say a <- "print(9**2)". How do I execute
the contents of the string, parsed as R code? Do I have to open a 
connection and use cat(a), and parse it at the other end?

                              One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture 
mailto:johannes at huesing.name  from such a trifling investment of fact.
