[R] Wild card characters

I have a string '982323.1' and would like to replace everything after the 
'.' with a '41'.  So the string should look like '982323.41'.  The code I 
use to do this is


This works fine as long as there is only 1 digit after the decimal.  If I 
have '982323.10', then the result of the code is '982323.141' instead of 

How do I fix the code to replace all characters after the decimal by 41?

Thank you
