Expose the names in lhs to the rhs expression. This is useful when functions do not have a built-in data argument.

lhs %$% rhs



A list, environment, or a data.frame.


An expression where the names in lhs is available.


Some functions, e.g. lm and aggregate, have a data argument, which allows the direct use of names inside the data as part of the call. This operator exposes the contents of the left-hand side object to the expression on the right to give a similar benefit, see the examples.
