[R] parsing speed

Hi everyone,

I have a question on parsing speed.

I have two functions:


As things are now, F2 calls F1 internally:

F2 = function(x){
if (something == 1){
y = F1(x)

if (something ==2){
do whatever


*Assuming there could be some difference*, is is faster to use the code as written above or should I actually write the statements of F1 to make the parsing faster?
