dear R users,

please, consider the following code you may run:


          my.list        = "list",
          my.array1      = "array"),
          my.list        =list(),
          my.array1      =array(0,c(3,3,3))


          my.array2        = "array",
          my.array3        = "array"),
          my.array2        =array(0,c(3,3,3)),
          my.array3        =array(0,c(3,3,3))


x <- new("my.class1")
x at my.list[[1]] <- new("my.class2")
x at my.list[[2]] <- new("my.class2")

Is there any method in R to trim dimensions of all the component arrays 
(my.array1, my.array2, my.array3, etc.) in one time inside all the 
hierarchical level of the composite object I named 'x'?

in other words, if I want to keep only the 2nd dimension, I have to do:
x at my.array1[,2,]
x at my.list[[1]]@my.array2[,2,]
x at my.list[[1]]@my.array3[,2,]
x at my.list[[2]]@my.array2[,2,]
x at my.list[[2]]@my.array3[,2,]

thank you
