Not paying close attention to detail, I entered the equivalent of
pstr<-c("b1=200", "b2=50", "b3=0.3")
when what I wanted was
pnum<-c(b1=200, b2=50, b3=0.3)
There was a list thread in 2010 that shows how to deal with un-named vectors, but the same
lapply solution doesn't seem to work here i.e.,
or similar vapply version. The names and = signs seem to mess things up.
This is clearly not critical, but it would be nice to know an appropriate transformation.
