[R] apply question

Sorry to bother the list with another apply question, but I am having
trouble getting my mind around the various apply forms.  A simplified
version of my problem is the following:

data _
listofAvars _ grep('^a',names(data),value=T)

I would like a1, a2, a3 to be multiplied by 10. That is, I would like a
cleaner way of specifying the following:

a1 <- a1*10
a2 <- a2*10
a3 <- a3*10

As I mentioned, this is a simplified version of a larger variables list
and slightly more complicated transformation.

Thanks in advance,

Michaell Taylor
