Re: [Rd] relist, an inverse operator to unlist

Hi all,

For reasons I can't explain, the code I posted worked in my session, but didn't work when I started a fresh one. standardGeneric() seems to get confused by defaults for missing arguments. It looks for a "missing" method with this code:

	relist <- function(flesh, skeleton=attr(flesh, "skeleton"))


I uploaded yet another new version that adds a wrapper that seems to resolve standardGeneric()'s confusion like this:

	relist <- function(flesh, skeleton=attr(flesh, "skeleton"))

# need a wrapper, since standardGeneric gets confused by # default arguments. f <- function(flesh, skeleton) standardGeneric("relist") f(flesh, skeleton) }
