[R] paste data

Hello,

I need a command.
I have a lot of data in different dataframes(auto.0a, auto.0b, auto.0c, auto.5Na,...), that has similar names.

I could print the names all at once wih a loop with the command paste(), see below:

plot<-c("0a","0b","0c","5Na","5Nb","5Nc","PKa","PKb","PKc","5NPKa","5NPKb",

        "5NPKc","10NPKa","10NPKb","10NPKc","20NPKa","20NPKb","20NPKc")

for (x in 1:length(plot))
{

	name<-paste("auto.",plot[x],sep="")
	print(name)

}

I want to do very similar things with all the dataframes and their structure is also the same. Is there a way to write a loop? (so that I don't have to write the same 18 times) I tried things like that:

for (x in 1:length(plot))
{

        plot(paste("auto.",plot[x],sep="")[,1],paste("auto.",plot[x],sep="")[,2],col=...) }

But it doesn't work because it just takes the character "auto.0a".

Thanks a lot for your help,
Sybille Wendel
