I apologize for this newbie question. But I can't seem to find in R online manual.

  1. How can I return two values in a function?
  2. How can I capture the values again of this function?

myfunc <- function (array) {

# do something with array
# get something assign to "foo" and "bar"

   # how can I return "foo" and "bar" ?

# Is this the way to capture it?

(nfoo,nbar) <- myfunc(some_array)
