[R] Dating Objects

I know this subject has been mentioned before but from the mail archives I'm under the impression that this is not possible ? I'm trying to carryout the equivalent of ls -l in R to give some date/time label to each of my objects

If the case is that there is no equivalent, is it possible to list all objects in an environment that share a common component ? So that the common component is also displayed ?

I'm attempting to do the following

object$time <- Sys.time() for every object i've created which although tedious appears to work

However I've no idea how if it is possible to list all the objects by $time or extract the object name & $ time from all objects simultaneously so I can compare them.
Or am I just wasting my time ?

Apologies but my knowledge of R is limited at best ;-( Any help would be fantastic and greatfully received
