String Concatenation in R

Benjamin Smith creates a function:

While it is possible to use the paste() or paste0() for string concatenation. I do understand how it can be messy to deal with, especially when working with loops and/or nested functions. In this short blog I share a remedy for this by writing a special function which can lend for cleaner code as opposed to using paste() or paste0().

It’s not quite as nice as a here string (e.g., @"{FirstName} just referenced the name here string at {UserTime}" user.FirstName DateTime.UtcNow) but this is a good reminder that operator creation in R is pretty easy. H/T R-Bloggers.
