u <- list()
u[[1]] <- a
In R this gives subscript out of bounds (also character, vector, etc.)
2. switch does not fall through:
gives a syntax error
3. format(diag(2)) returns a vector instead of a matrix
4. print.default in S has an option, right=T, but R does not
5. use of stop() in a function does not return a NULL from the
