[R] extracting object names as strings

	I'm looking for a function which returns the name of the argument
object as a string: 

>vect <- 1:3

I've looked at 'name', 'names', 'objects', none seem to do exactly what I
want. ls/objects comes close, but I can't figure out how to force it to
give me only one object name.
