Values allow you to store information in a program which you can use later. There are two ways to store values in R. The format is the same for both: variable name, assignment operator, value.
The first way is using the
<- assignment operator. Here are a few examples.
my.string <- "my string value" my.number <- 2 my.list <- c(1, 2, 3)
In newer version of R, you can also use the
= operator, which is common in many languages. Here are some examples.
my.string = "my string value" my.number = 2 my.list = c(1, 2, 3)
