hi, all-

i wrote a function that accept multiple arguments, but don't know how to assign names automatically. run the following code:

foo <- function (...) {
  x = list(...)
  names(x) <- deparse(substitute(...))
  x
}
a = 1; b = 2; c = 3
y <- foo( a, b, c)
names(y)

as you can see, only the first items are correctly named. how do i correct this problem?
