Feel free to provide me a link or reference instead of an answer.
f <- function() function(x)rnorm(x)
g <- f()
##  -0.4448492 -0.2379978 -0.4537394
rnorm <- function()1 ## nasty nasty
## Error in rnorm(x) : unused argument(s) (x)
## of course f <- function()function(x)stats:::rnorm(x)
## would fix this.
Suppose I defined f() as at top in a package namespace and exported it.
Would a user see this same error defining g() and with rnorm redefined
as above? (Assume stats is attached as usual). I presume so, but ...
If the answer to Q1 is yes, (how) can this be avoided without using fully
qualified function names?
Again, a quick reference to relevant docs would suffice.
