[R] concat

i have a function that returns a list containing a variety of variable types
i am trying to run the function multiple times and return the output into a 
variable with a semi-consistent naming pattern

i.e., for ten trials i want to return the list into variables

is there a generic way to get this to happen

i have a similar process that does the same thing to an external file:

   paste("connection", trial, ".net", sep="") -> outfile
   write(header, file=outfile, ncolumns=2)
   write("*Edges", file=outfile, append=TRUE)
   write(connection, file=outfile, ncolumns=2, append=TRUE)

where trial progresses so that these outputs are written to 
connection1.net, coneection2.net and so forth

i am having a tough time figuring out how to do the same for a variable 
within R

and sorry, i just couldn't figure out the right place to look for this one.
