I would like to do the following operations:
variable.df is a character string that contains the name of the data
frame that I want to do the following operations on:
variable.df <- data.frame();
# I can do the above command using
assign( variable.df, data.frame() )
How can I perform the assignment statements below ?
colnames(variable.df) = colnames(some.other.df)
variable.df = rbind(variable.df, some.other.df)
eval( substitute( colnames(var), list(var=as.name(variable.df) ) ) )
didn't get me all the way there.
