: Hello all:
: I wonder if there is a generic way to assign the name of a function as an
: attribute of the function. For example,
: w = function(x) x^2;
: attr(w, "name") =  "w";
: This assigns the name attribute of function w to be "w".
: Would it be possible to put the second line of the code inside the
: function definition? I would like to avoid typing specifically the
: name, "w", when assigning the attribute.

structure(function(x) x^2, name = "w")
