Some important points taken from "Object-Oriented Programming, Functional Programming and R", by John M. Chambers

An article about what is Functional Programming (FP), and how does it differ from Object Oriented Programming (OOP) ?

Why do we use arrow `<-` instead of equal `=` for assignment in #RStats :
It’s an historical choice: R comes from S, which used <- for assignment. S uses `<-` partly because it is inspired by APL, which had the ← operator for assignment, as it was developed for this keyboard, which has a key for arrow :

Not that at that time, with APL, the arrow was chosen because it distinguished from the equal operator (there were no `==` for testing equality).
