[R] Questions about paste and assign

    I would like to assign a value to a member b of the list a in position 3, by calling:

                                            assign( target, 2.34, 3)

My question is what the "target" should be. I tried target <- paste("a", $, "b") and something else, but haven't got the right answer yet.

BTW, if I attached a list named "mylist" in position 3, to refer to this environment, besides 3, what's the right name ?

Thanks a lot for any help
