Dear list,
If I have this toy function:
toy <- function(b=.95){
toyframe <- data.frame(lion.95 = c(1, 2))
return(toyframe)
}
How can I obtain that for any value b,
the name of the column becomes "lionb",
i.e. lion.95 if b = .95, lion.85 if b = .85 etc.
knowing that .95 (.85 etc.) may also be
given as 0.95 (0.85 etc.) but that the
result should be lion.95 (lion.85 etc.)
Thanks in advance,
Tobias
