Dear R People:

Suppose I have the following:

z <- sample(1:4)

if(z == 1)
	bx <- x1
if(z == 2)
	bx <- x2

and so on.

There is something that I can do (Maybe with paste and assign)
to get
bx <- paste("x",z,sep=""))
#Not right, but this is the example.

R version 1.2.2 for Windows
Could someone please help?

Thanks in advance!
