an ornithological study of functional birds
Results of my exercises in gaining understanding of combinators, applied to R.
Inspired by the very approachable article  and its followup , implementations of the M- and Y-combinator in idiomatic R are shown (that is, if there is such a thing as idiomatic R; lets call it functional R).
I did not find any R packages providing a combinator toolset, the closest is this parser toolkit . At some point I might extend this into a proper package for any needs of functional madness.
