Non-standard evaluation and standard evaluation


Dplyr and many modern libraries in R use non-standard evaluation (NSE) for interactive programming and standard evaluation (SE) for programming1.

For instance, the summarise() function use non-standard evaluation but relies on the summarise_() which uses standard evaluation.

The lazyeval library makes it easy to turn standard evaluation function into NSE functions.
