Return All Data Objects in Workspace in R (2 Examples)

This tutorial illustrates how to return all data objects in the global environment in the R programming language.

Creating Example Data

data(iris)                     # Create some data objects
iris <- iris[1:5, ]
x1 <- letters[1:5]
x2 <- 6:1

Example 1: Return Names of Data Objects in Workspace

ls()                           # Display names
# [1] "iris" "x1"   "x2"

Example 2: Return Content of Data Objects in Workspace

mget(ls())                     # Display content
# $iris
#   Sepal.Length Sepal.Width Petal.Length Petal.Width Species
# 1          5.1         3.5          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 2          4.9         3.0          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 3          4.7         3.2          1.3         0.2  setosa
# 4          4.6         3.1          1.5         0.2  setosa
# 5          5.0         3.6          1.4         0.2  setosa
# 
# $x1
# [1] "a" "b" "c" "d" "e"
# 
# $x2
# [1] 6 5 4 3 2 1
