Hi everyone,

say I have a function called 'foo', which takes the argument arg1.

Is there any mechanism that I can use to "learn" about the variable where foo(arg1) is going to be stored?

For example:

x <- foo(arg1)

so, inside foo() I'd like to be able to get the string "x".



was used insted, I'd like to get NA.

thank you very much,
