R Error: Unexpected Input in X (2 Examples)
This article illustrates how to deal with the error message “unexpected input in X” in the R programming language.
The page contains these contents:
Let’s take a look at some R codes in action:
Example 1: Reproduce the Error: unexpected input in X
In this Example, I’ll explain how to replicate the error “unexpected input in X” in R. First, let’s create a numeric data object:
x <- 5 # Some numeric data
Now, let’s assume that we want to print this data object to the RStudio console. For some reason, we are putting a slash behind the name of our data object:
x\ # Replicating the error # Error: unexpected input in "x\"
The error message “unexpected input in X” appears.
Example 2: Fix the Error: unexpected input in X
In this Example, I’ll illustrate how to solve the error “unexpected input in X”. For this, we simply have to remove all wrong symbols (i.e. a slash) from our code:
x # Printing x # 5
The value five that is stored in the data object x was printed to the console.
