I'm new to R from a C and Octave/Matlab background. I am trying to
construct some classes in R to which I want to attach pieces of data.
First, is attr(obj, 'member name') <- data the accepted way of doing
Second, having attached member data with attr is there anything wrong
with accessing it by the asperand (@), i.e.
> t = ""
> attr(t, 'test') <- 4
> t at test
I can't find any documentation on using the asperand to access
attributes like this. I saw it in a piece of code as I was googling
around trying to find some information on attaching data to a class
in R. Is this deprecated? Is this poor form? If anyone has some
suggestions please let me know.
