[R] define stuff to be only usable in the same file

Hello R-Help!

I've looked around and have not found:

A simple(short) way to hide functions and variables from the global environment. What i want is for a few of them to only be accessable from the scriptfile they're in. I probably could do fun things with environments , but that seems quite a hassle.

As example: I have a file that gets me stuff from the database and creates an R object from the results, plus some functions on that object. Now i want the objectrelated stuff to be global, while the functions and variables i use for accessing the database shall be hidden.
