Dear R wizards: is there a clean way to assign to elements in a list?
what I would like to do, in pseudo R+perl notation is
f <- function(a,b) list(a+b,a-b)
(c,d) <- f(1,2)
and have c be assigned 1+2 and d be assigned 1-2. right now, I use the clunky
x <- f(1,2)
c <- x[[1]]
d <- x[[2]]
rm(x)
which seems awful. is there a nicer syntax?
regards, /iaw
