How to add a new value to each element of list in R?

R ProgrammingServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

Suppose we have a list that contain two elements and we get a new value for both of these elements then the problem of adding those values to the original list arises. This can be done with the help of mapply function. We can append the new values in the original easily but a vector of the new values needs to be created first.

 Live Demo

List1<−list(x1=rnorm(50),x2=rnorm(50))
new<−list(0.34,0.37)

Adding new values to List1 −

Example

List1<−mapply(append,List1,new,SIMPLIFY=FALSE)
List1
