Dear helpeRs,

I would like to use this thread for a proposal which lingered in my head for quite a while. Several years ago I was an APL aficionado and I very much liked the idea of an APL idiom list (see e.g http://www.pyr.fi/apl/texts/Idiot.htm).

Looking at the solution of Dimitris Rizopoulos wouldn't it be nice not to have it disappear in the archives? To be explicit I would like to propose an R idiom list. If there does exist one please forgive my ignorance.

Best regards
