[R] Creating a series of new environments

Dear All,  

I would like to automate the creation of new environments.  

What I currently do to create environments is the following:  

en1 <- new.env(parent = .GlobalEnv)
en2 <- new.env(parent = .GlobalEnv)
en3 <- new.env(parent = .GlobalEnv)


I would like to be able to do something like the following: nms <- c("en1", "en2", "en3", ...)  

for(i in nms) i <- new.env(parent = .GlobalEnv)  

This, contrary to what I desire, creates a new environment named "i" for the length of the nms object.    

Kind regards and thank you,
J. Powell
