This recipe explains what are strings in R


Recipe Objective

Variables are used to store data in any programming language. In R language, The type of the data is checked at run time. The different data types in R include: Character (also known as string in other programming languages), Numeric , Integer, Factor and Logical.

In R, any alphabet, number or combination of them when enclosed in sigle or double quotes is stored as a character data type.

In this recipe, We will demonstrate how to assign a character (also known as string in other languages).

Step 1: Define a character variable

Combination of alphabet and numbers

a = "Hello123"

To check the data type of a variable, we use class() function


Combination of numbers

b = "123"

To check the data type of a variable, we use class() function
