If a column exists in both data frames, it is row binded as usual.
Second, using base R to add a new column to a dataframe is not my preferred method. I strongly prefer using mutate() from dplyr (I'll discuss why I prefer dplyr below).

These functions allow crossing the data in a number of ways and avoid explicit use of loop constructs. Hi all, I tended to use rbind, or cbind to force a vector be be deemed as a column or row vector. This is very important if I want to do things like u' * A * u, where u' is a row vector and u is a column vector, regardless of what originall format the "u" is...

FALSE is a special value, meaning that all values can be compared, and may be the only value accepted for methods other than the default. It will be coerced internally to the same type as x. fromLast
