Is there a function to convert character strings to object references.  For
example, I want to name sets of objects based on scenarios and the types of
data being stored.  So the scenarios might be something like c("a", "b",
"c"), the types of data might have names like c("pass.trp", "trk.trp",
"cmute.trp"), and I want to assign data to the objects a.pass.trp,
b.pass.trp, c.pass.trp, a.trk.trp, etc.  I'd like to be able to paste the
names together and then use them as an object references.
