Split a list into two columns

How do I split this into two columns?

I have a list here that contains

[1] "A" "O"

[1] "F" "O"

[1] "F" "O"

[1] "F" "OP"

Is it possible to do this?

I tried to do do split(., " ") but it didn't do anything

Here is one method.

MyList <- list(c("A","O"),c("F","O"),c("F","O"),c("F","OP"))


map_dfr(MyList, ~set_names(.x, nm = c("V1", "V2")))
#> # A tibble: 4 x 2
#>   V1    V2   
#>   <chr> <chr>
#> 1 A     O    
#> 2 F     O    
#> 3 F     O    
#> 4 F     OP

I'd like to provide you with another solution, though it by default turns the list into a matrix:

mx1 <- do.call(rbind,list(c("A","O"),c("F","O"),c("F","O"),c("F","OP")))
     [,1] [,2]
[1,] "A"  "O" 
[2,] "F"  "O" 
[3,] "F"  "O" 
[4,] "F"  "OP"

[1] "A" "F" "F" "F"
[1] "O"  "O"  "O"  "OP"

I have no idea why this works but it seems to work, it knows where to split it somehow
