[R] Splitting Datasets

On R 2.12 for Mac OSX, I have a dataset with both numerical and character values.  

I want to split dataset "ZIDL", into individual datasets based on the string content of variable "Dept".  

I can create one subset dataset at a time using a script I found on the net, but rather than run the same function 17 times, can R look at the "Dept" variable and create subset datasheets of the main datasheet (one for each department) with a single command?  

In Minitab, this would be the "Split Worksheet" function.  

I am horrible at scripting, but trying to learn fast.  

Thanks in advance,
