[R] Can you send "side effect" text into a variable?

Dear folks --

There are a number of functions -- I am thinking of str() as an example --
that produce text as a side-effect, rather then returning it. Is there any
way to send the text produced by such functions into a character variable? 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
