Although I tried to find an answer in the manuals and archives, I cannot
solve this (please excuse that my English and/or R programming skills
are not good enough to state my problem more clearly):

In the archives I found the following thread (followed by Marc Schwartz)

http://finzi.psych.upenn.edu/R/Rhelp02a/archive/15186.html [R] returning argument names from Peter Dalgaard BSA on 2003-04-10 (stdin)

that seems to contain the solution to my problem, but I am stuck because sapply(match.call()[-1], deparse) gives me a vector of strings and I don't know how to use the names in this vector in the cbind() function.

Up to now my (clearly deficit) function looks like:

test <- function(..., mvalid=1)

{

args = sapply(match.call()[-1], deparse)

*# and here, I don't know how the vector names in args
**# can be used in the cbind() function to follow:
**#
*

# temp <- cbind( ???

if (mvalid > 1)

{

# here it goes on

}

}

Ultimately, I want that the function can be called like
test(x1,x2,mvalid=1)

or

test(x1,x3,x5,mavlid=2)

and that within the function

cbind(x1,x2)

or cbind(x1,x3,x5)

will be used.

Can someone give and explain an example / a solution on how to proceed?
