Thanks Prof. Ripley and Dr. Venables for your prompt responses!
It seems like the key to my question is to use
via sapply, as suggested by Prof. Ripley:
> sapply(as.list(LETTERS), function(x) get(x)$Title)
(I found sapply(LETTERS, function(x) get(x)$Title) works the same.)
or via lapply, as suggested by Dr. Venables:
> titles <- lapply(LETTERS, function(x) get(x)$Title)
As in terms of print them out,
> sapply(LETTERS, function(x) get(x)$Title
is good enough, or use Dr. Vernables' suggestion:
> print(paste(unlist(titles), collapse = "\n"), quote = FALSE)
however, collapse = "\n" should be sep = "\n" instead.
Thanks very much again!
Look forward the R- 1.2.0 for Windows 98!
