##### asVarName

This function grabs a symbol out of an expression and returns it as a character (see details for which symbol will be used).

This is a convenience function for use when constructing custom function handlers, it's unlikely to have much utility outside of that context.

##### Usage
asVarName(x)
##### Arguments
x

The (sub)expression to extract a symbol from

##### Details

This function always returns a character vector representing a single symbol from x, but which code varies depending on the exact form of x. When

• x is a single symbolthe character representation of the symbol is returned

• x is a function callasVarName is recursively called on the sub-expression for the first argument

• x is an assignmentasVarName is called recursively on the right-hand side (after -> expressions are transformed to <- ones). This is a special case of the rule above.

##### Value

A character vector of length one representing the symbol (or literal) as described in the Details section.

• asVarName
##### Examples
# NOT RUN {
asVarName(quote(rnorm(x, y, z))) # "x"
asVarName(quote(rnorm(x, y, z))[[1]] ) # "rnorm" b/c [[1]] is called fun
asVarName(quote(rownames(a) <- b )) # "a"
asVarName(quote(rnorm(10, y, z))) # "10"
# }
