##
## Example of evalq()
##
N <- 3
env <- new.env()
assign("N", 27, envir = env)
## this version changes the visible copy of N only, since the argument
## passed to eval is '4'.
eval(N <- 4, env)
N
get("N", envir = env)
## this version does the assignment in env, and changes N only there.
evalq(N <- 5, env)
N
get("N", envir = env)
##
## Uses of local()
##
# Mutually recursive.
# gg gets value of last assignment, an anonymous version of f.
gg <- local({
k <- function(y)f(y)
f <- function(x) if(x) x*k(x-1) else 1
})
gg(10)
sapply(1:5, gg)
# Nesting locals: a is private storage accessible to k
gg <- local({
k <- local({
a <- 1
function(y){print(a <<- a+1);f(y)}
})
f <- function(x) if(x) x*k(x-1) else 1
})
sapply(1:5, gg)
ls(envir = environment(gg))
ls(envir = environment(get("k", envir = environment(gg))))
