Hi,

how can I automatically access the functions that I loaded into a separate environment?

> save(A,B,file="myfun.r")
> load("myfun.r",envir=(ENV<-new.env()))
> ls(ENV)

[1] "A" "B"

?"[" turned up that I can access the functions via

> ENV$A

function ()
{
}
> ENV$A()

NULL Now, how can they be included in the search() path?? attach() as for data.frames does not work...

Furthermore, if I change a functions environment to ENV, why is it not listed with ls(ENV)?? Instead it still lives in .GlobalEnv

> C<-function(){}
> environment(C)<-ENV
> ls(ENV)

[1] "A" "B"
> C

function(){}
<environment: 0x9cbbb58>
> ENV

<environment: 0x9cbbb58>

Thanks folks!
I enjoy reading and learning from r-help list!
