It seems to me that has probably been asked in the past. But I cannot find
the track.

I usually need to extract elements from a list and contruct vector from
them; e.g., to create a table. Perhaps there is a way to directly extract
them without looping?
Simple example:

> S.lst
[1] 24.58719

[1] 60.82861

[1] 32.39551

[1] 59.46347


I would like to extract, e.g.,  directly all weights element from each
sublist without looping. I  know it is possible to do this as:


but there is not some short-cut? something like

S.lst[[1:length(S.lst)]]$weight ?

Thanks and B.regards
