I want to apply a more complicated function than what I use in my example, but the idea is the same:

Suppose you have a data frame named x and you want to a function applied to each variable, we'll just use the quantile function for this example. I'm trying all sorts of apply functions, but not having luck. My best guess would be:

sapply(x, FUN=quantile)
