#' Execute code after tidy evaluation
#'
#' This function takes R code as arguments and executes this code in the calling environment.
#' All quoted variables (using rlang's quasiquotation, !! or !!!) will be unquoted prior to evaluation.
#' This results in executed in code in which the variable is replaced verbatim by its value,
#' as if you had typed the variable's value.
#' This is particularly useful for functions using base R's substitute() approach, such
#' as functions taking formulas, and you have built the formula dynamically.
#' It is unnecessary for all functions based on tidy_eval (dplyr).
#'
#' @param ... R code snippets
#'
#' @return The value of the last evaluated expression.
#' @export
#'
#' @examples
#' library(rlang)
#' # Note that evaluation takes place in the calling environment!
#' l <- quo(l <- 1) # l is a quosure in our env
#' eval_unquoted(!!l)
#' l == 1 # TRUE: l is now a vector
