Yes, definitely use  format() { or formatC() }!

format() actually  *does* use  `options(digits)' .
So you could set the option and then call format() several times
without setting digits.  
{ formatC() main purpose has been for text in graphics, and
  hence does not use options(digits),  but by default uses only
  a few digits}
