 Hello all,
I have to learning R from beginning, since my group will get rid of SAS. So, my question may not be very clear for professional R user. I always dealing with column in data frame, not data vector. 
Many thanks to Greg's example. it is very helpful.
one more question, how can I know if the function is for column manipulations or for vector?
Thank you,

fwiw, i almost always use '[.]' in preference to '\\\\\\\\.', as it
seems to be more likely to get through the various levels of quoting in
different contexts.
