[Rd] vector arguments to if()
Sat Nov 30 19:21:02 2002
The current R-devel now warns about passing vectors of length > 1 to if().
There seem to be a *lot* of such misuses amongst packages, including in
the recommended packages lattice and mgcv. Since S warns, this is almost
entirely confined to packages originally written for R.
Would package developers please check their packages under R-devel at
their convenience. I would be interested to hear of any misuses in R
itself: several have come to light but more may be lurking.
