[R] collating columns

Dumb newbie question: I've searched the manual, R help and the mailing list archives, but can't seem to find the answer to this simple problem that I have. If I have a series of columns in a dataframe: (A, B, C ...) and I want to merge them with another series of columns (Z,Y,X ...) such that the resulting data frame has columns A,Z,B,Y,C,X ..., how do I do this? In other words, I'm trying to collate two column sets (for purposes of writing a presentable file) rather than simply using cbind to add one set of columns onto the end of another set.

Thanks in advance of your help.

Matt
