Assign Values In a List to Names

Share:

Description

Assigns the values in a list to variables in an environment. The variable names are taken from the names of the list, so all of the elements of the list must have non-blank names.

Usage

1
assignList(aList, pos = -1, envir = as.environment(pos), inherits = FALSE)

Arguments

aList

a list of values to be assigned to variables with names given by names(aList).

pos

where to do the assignment. By default, assigns into the current environment.

envir

the environment to use.

inherits

should the enclosing frames of the environment be inspected?

Details

See assign for details on how R assignment works. This function simply uses the elements of names(aList) and aList itself to call the .Internal function used by assign once for each element of aList.

Value

This function is invoked for its side effect, which assigns values to the variables with names given by names(aList).
