lazyeval

Build Status Coverage Status

The lazyeval package provides tools that make it easier to correctly implement non-standard evaluation (NSE) in R. You use lazy evaluation by requiring the user to "quote" specially evaluated arguments with ~, and then using the lazyeval package to compute with those formulas. It is also possible to eliminate the use of the ~ by converting promises to formulas. This does make programming with such functions a little harder, but it can be worth it in certain situations. See vignette("lazyeval") for more details.
