For 'cbind' ('rbind') the column (row) names are taken from the
names of the arguments, or where those are not supplied by
deparsing the expressions given (if that gives a sensible name).
The names will depend on whether data frames are included: see the
examples.
and you cbind-ed a data frame with columns y, x to a data frame with
column x. It seems to me that what S-PLUS does is equally inconsistent:
abc <- data.frame(y=1:4, x=rnorm(4))
d <- data.frame(x=1:4, e=5:8)
> cbind(abc, d)
y x x e
...
> cbind(abc, d=d)
y x d.x d.e
...
> cbind(abc, d=d[1])
y x d
...
> cbind(abc, d[1])
y x x
...
and I would have expected the third to give the name d.x, not d and not x.
Differences from S-PLUS (and please learn to write that correctly!) are
not per se bugs in R.
