Codes that are Identical (R)

I love decoding (in conceptual meaning) code functions and be hateful by finding multiple functions that do the same job. But that's when those "single" functions do the same job. On the other hand, I also love finding what combination of function can reroute a data back to the original format. I too often use identical() to verify they are the same, as previously noted in the other blog entry >>> WTF Facts - recode (R).

Today's finding is in below, for the original string data, `txt`;

paste(unlist(strsplit(txt, split = " ")), collapse = " ")

and this is the same as txt. Watch;
