Hi I have the smililar question.

I have a list:
my_list <- list(name="Fred", wife="Mary", no.children=3, child.ages=c(4,7,9))

> my_list

$name
[1] "Fred"

$wife
[1] "Mary"

$no.children
[1] 3

$child.ages
[1] 4 7 9

Now I want to search "Fred" and get attribute of that value which is 'name'.

how do I get it.

> match(my_list,"Fred")

[1] 1 NA NA NA

my thinking stops right here...

list operations in R is too tough to digest and there is not good documentations.

Could any one please help.

thanks
Srini
