Hi!

In python, one can define variables in the form `x1, x2, x3 = f(y)`

, where the function f returns a tuple.

Is there anything similar in R? It'll be quite useful in many situations, like defining similar type of variables simultaneously.

For example, say I have a discrete dataset and I want to do something with its frequency distribution. Then `table`

returns frequency of all the distinct values. One may can simply define f1, f2, etc simultaneously, instead of

```
f1 <- table(data)[1]
f2 <- table(data)[2]
# etc
```

Thanks
