Is there anything similar to tuple unpacking in R


#1

Hi!

In python, one can define variables in the form x1, x2, x3 = f(y), where the function f returns a tuple.

Is there anything similar in R? It'll be quite useful in many situations, like defining similar type of variables simultaneously.

For example, say I have a discrete dataset and I want to do something with its frequency distribution. Then table returns frequency of all the distinct values. One may can simply define f1, f2, etc simultaneously, instead of

f1 <- table(data)[1]
f2 <- table(data)[2]
# etc

Thanks

The zeallot package supplies this.
