Convert an expression to a function

This is to be called from another function, because it will attempt to get an unquoted expression from two calls back.

Usage
exprToFunction(expr, env = parent.frame(2), quoted = FALSE,
  caller_offset = 1)
Details

If expr is a quoted expression, then this just converts it to a function. If expr is a function, then this simply returns expr (and prints a deprecation message). If expr was a non-quoted expression from two calls back, then this will quote the original expression and convert it to a function.

Examples
# Example of a new renderer, similar to renderText
# This is something that toolkit authors will do
renderTriple <- function(expr, env=parent.frame(), quoted=FALSE) {
  # Convert expr to a function
  func <- shiny::exprToFunction(expr, env, quoted)

  function() {
    value <- func()
    paste(rep(value, 3), collapse=", ")
  }
}


# Example of using the renderer.
# This is something that app authors will do.
values <- reactiveValues(A="text")

# Create an output object
output$tripleA <- renderTriple({
  values$A
})

# At the R console, you can experiment with the renderer using isolate()
tripleA <- renderTriple({
  values$A
})

isolate(tripleA())
# "text, text, text"
