Hi Ernesto,

As a hack,

> library(FLCore)
Loading required package: lattice
FLCore 1.4-4 - "Golden Jackal" 
> these <- ls("package:FLCore", all.names=TRUE)
> res <- metaNameUndo(these, prefix="C")
> as.character(res)
 [1] "FLBiol"    "FLBiols"   "FLCatch"   "FLFleet"   "FLFleets"  "FLIndex"  
 [7] "FLIndices" "FLQuant"   "FLQuants"  "FLSR"      "FLStock"   "FLStocks"
