This works for me...
get0 = function(x) get(x,pos=1)
The extra step seems necessary because without it, get() gets base::cat() instead of cat.

Subject: [R] cbind question, please
I have a cbind type question, please: Suppose I have the following:
dog <- 1:3
cat <- 2:4
tree <- 5:7
and a character vector
big.char <- c("dog","cat","tree")
I want to end up with a matrix that is a "cbind" of dog, cat, and tree.
This is a toy example. There will be a bunch of variables.
I experimented with "do.call", but all I got was
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I still think that do.call
might be the key, but I'm not sure.
