[R] [BASIC] Solution of combining two strings

You can try the following code:

R> string3 <- paste(string1, string2, sep="")
R> ?paste

Have a look at the following functions too which I
found useful when I wanted to use 'paste':

R> ?assign
R> ?sub
R> ?gsub

Please don't forget to read the posting guide.



ps. I hope that you haven't received any "vitriolic"
and "curt" responses to your basic question as some
questioners sometimes do.
