I think you need to try to specify your needs a little bit
more carefully. Here is a function that technically meets
your needs:
library("example_pkg") ## to load the contributed package
myfunction <- function() { ## function with no arguments
foo() ## assuming the function "foo" is in the package
list(matrix(nrow=2,ncol=2),matrix(nrow=3,ncol=3),matrix(nrow=4,ncol=4)
}
But I suspect that doesn't really do what you need ...
