try do.call(rbind,res)

>I am doing the following: 
>1. I have a list of files.. Files1=list.files("some
>directory",pattern="some pattern")
>2. I define a list as res=vector("list", length(files1))
>3. I read all the files into this list: res=lapply(files1, read.csv)
>I now want to rowbind all the items in the list into one big mass (all
>files have same number of columns). I tried lapply(res, rbind) but that
>did not work. Suggestions?
