#' backpipes: \%<\%, \%<<\%
#' 
#' @description 
#' Provides back-piping operators \code{\%<\%} (magrittr) or 
#' \code{\%<<\%} (pipeR) allowing a reverses (right-to-left) order of 
#' arguments
#' 
#' @param lhs argument on the lhs of the backpipe
#' @param rhs argument on the rhs of the backpipe
#'
#' @details
#' 
#' * \code{\%<\%} works with magrittr. \code{\%<<\%} works with piper. They are
#'   both based on \code{\link{backpipe}}.\cr
#' 
#' * Other magrittr operators and complex expressions are not supported yet. 
#' 
#' * It is not possible to mix forward and and backward piping in the same 
#'   expression because of likely ambiguous results.

# This is conditional export based on whether magrittr or pipeR are loaded.
# Support magrittr: It also requires:
#     exportPattern( "%.*%")
# in the NAMESPACE file
#  There may be other magrittr packages
# Conditional assignment
# if( any( grepl( "^package:magrittr.*", search() ) ) ) 
#  assign( '%<%', backpipe('%>%') )

# Support pipeR
# if( "package:pipeR" %in% search() ) 
#   assign( '%<<%', backpipe('%>>%') )
