[R] Applying a function to all combinations of factors

Is there a way to apply a function, say cor(), to each combination of some number of variables, and this, without using loops?

For example, I have day, hour, var1 and var2. How could I compute cor(var1,var2) for each day*hour combination and obtain a matrix with day, hour and the cor value for each combination?

Thanks for your time,
