Dear expRts,
I have a character string, say a <- "print(9**2)". How do I execute the contents of the string, parsed as R code? Do I have to open a
connection and use cat(a), and parse it at the other end?



Johannes Hüsing               There is something fascinating about science. 
                              One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture 
mailto:johannes_at_huesing.name  from such a trifling investment of fact.
