[R] Getting the character set

Hi R-gurus,

In python one can do
>>> import string
>>> print string.letters

and get the characters in the local character set.

This feature is often useful in Python, and if I could find it in R I could make good use of it.

In R both Sys.getlocale() and localeToCharset() can tell me which charset I am using, but I haven't found a way to print out the actual characters. Is there a way to do this?
