[R] Return one value, print another

I had considered creating a special class, but you are right that it
was more than I (really) wanted to do.  Setting the global digits
option is an excellent suggestion.  Thank you.  Right now I am working
with simple functions mostly to save myself a few steps.


I did not use print() because I was under the (mistaken) impression
that functions would only return the last expression evaluated or the
contents of return().  So I thought if I used print() it would be
ignored unless it came outside the function, and I did not want to
create global objects.  Also I used a list() just following the
suggestion from the return help page, but I will look at named vectors
also.  So thank you for that idea too.

Thanks again.
