Mutable objects in R. Programming paradigms help us understand the differences and similarities between fundamental choices in language design. This paper looks at R in the context of three paradigms of object oriented programming: mutable versus immutable objects, generic-function versus message-passing methods, and class-based versus prototype-based inheritance. The paper also describes a new OO package for R, mutatr, which provides mutable objects with message-passing methods and prototype-based inheritance. The mutatr package is available on CRAN.
