System info:
R version rw1020 on NT
ESS using emacs ver. 20.4


To keep my scripts short and tidy, I want to call sub-functions and return
variables from these for subsequent use in the calling function.


"test.smooth.opc.time.series" <-


Within the sub-function "load.opc.ascii.files" I have tried two ways of
assigning variables for use by the calling function

 dir <<- c('h:/data/nov99_tan9913/opc/')

This works but clutters the workspace.

assign(dir,  c('h:/data/nov99_tan9913/opc/')), envir = 

Which returns an odd error telling me there is an invalid first argument
in assign. I don't see why, after reading the help on this function.

Any suggestions? Help will be appreciated.
