[R] sink() not working as expected

You do not assign the pipe output, so put the print statement as the 
last instruction of the pipe. The following works.

# file: rhelp.R

mtcars %>%
   select(mpg, cyl, disp, hp, am) %>%
     sampdt = c("automatic", "manual")[am + 1L]
   ) %>%

Then, I've just tested it,


Hope this helps,
