Re: [R] eval() parse() and problem with square brackets

RExcel and R (D)COM Server together allow you to write R commands in Excel, execute them in hidden instance of R and get results back to Excel. For more details - see

The problem I have arises because R commands written in Excel are transformed before execution in R (among other thing eval and parse are added). I can get the result of the transformation and try to execute it in normal instance of R (not hidden one started from Excel) - this is how I've found where the error comes from.

In my first post I have simplified situation and haven't mention about using Excel at all.
