[R] Printing upon calling a function

TOPIC: Why some returned values do not automatically print.
Again, not seeing the internals, my guess is the function returned not the expected but "invisible(expected)" which just marks it as not to be automatically printed.
So if you want it printed, ask for it explicitly as in:
What you did was to copy the object and then the copy does not keep the invisibility so when invoked, gets the default print action.

Thanks. I know, my point was on why I get something printed by simply doing line 1 below and at other occasions had to do line 2.
