I don't know the historical reason why the char '_' was
defined in the R language grammar as a synonyme of the
assignment <-, anyway the R documentation dosen't recommand
Well, this is a real "incompatibility issue" each time
we need to interface R with other language/systems, notably with
database systems. Recall that, in perhaps all computer systems,
the char '_' can be used in the name of a variable or a column
in a data table.
So that's my question : is there an option to change this
All that I want is the possibility to use the same name of
variables in my R source as they are declared in the other systems.
