Hi. If I have two numeric columns in a data frame, I can use the paste command to combine them into a new column separated by a comma. c3=paste(c1,c2,sep=',')
gives: 1 1 -> "1,1"
Is there any way I can use a new line (\n) as a separator? i.e.
1 1 -> 1

         1
I tried paste(1,1,'\n') but it only gives "1\n1" Is there any other command for this? I tried cat but it doesn't work for columns.
Sorry if its already answered somewhere else, but I couldn't find it. Thanks.
