R is a powerful and efficient programming language for statistics, modeling, and data mining. Here I want to provide a quick note on the question "How do I get the name of a function in R?".

Consider the scenario where you write a function myFun in the form of <- function(f) { … } that accepts another function f as parameter and computes something. Maybe your computation takes a lot of time, so you want to output some logging information which contains the name of the function f as well, so the reader can see what is going on. Or maybe you want to generate a report with the results from several functions, so you want the "function names" to be the section titles of the report. Getting the name of a function (or any object) in R is actually quite tricky. Here I discuss a working approach.
