 "A1" "B2" "C3"
in your example
paste(site, depth, sep="")

Subject: [External] [R] Concatenation?
If I have a vector of site abbreviations and a vector of depths in those water bodies, is there a simple way in R to combine them to make a third vector?
site depth desired
MU 0 MU0
MU 1 MU1
MU 2 MU2
MC 0 MC0
MC 1 MC1
MC 2 MC2
The dataset has many more lines than this. I can see how to do this with lots of if statements, but does R have magic that can make it happen easily? I guess this would be called concatenation.
