Try this:
 lst1<-lapply(1:5,function(i) {pdf(paste0(i,".pdf"));  hist(rnorm(100),main=paste0("Histogram_",i));dev.off()}) #you can change the numbers

>I'm trying to generate a pdf called 1.pdf, 2.pdf, 3.pdf etc and it isn't 
>working. My code is: 
>x <- 0 
>for(i in 1:1000){ 
>x <- x + 1 
>pdf(as.character(x),".pdf") #writes out to pdf 
>for(i in 1:1000000){ 
>hist(rnorm(1)) # graphs histogram, writen to the file 
>Also, I triedto just do 
>a<- 1 
 >between the pdf() and dev.off() line and it wouldnt add it to the file, even with a name as "foo.pdf".
