[R] for-loop with multiple variables changing

Hi all,

Never really managed to build a for-loop with multiple running variables in an elegant way.

Can anybody hint ?

See below for an example of what I would like.

EXAMPLE
a<-c(1,2,3)
b<-c("name1","name2","name3")

for( number in a, name in b ) {

	print( number ) ##take a value
	print( name ) ##and have its name available from a second list
}

Does R support this natively ?

thanks !
