Manipulating Expressions

  • Thomas Mailund
Chapter

Abstract

Expressions, the kind you create using the quote function, come in four flavors: a primitive value, a name, a function call or a control structure, and a pairlist. Function calls include operators such as the arithmetic or logical operators because these are function calls as well in R, and control structures can be considered just a special kind of function calls—they only really differ from function calls in the syntax you use to invoke them.
