[R] creating files using for loop

I tried that, and the problem seems to be that the results of the
'paste'ing are enclosed in quotes...that is the paste yields
'101.tex'. Of course, that is what I said I wanted above, and it
should work for that particular instance, but I also want to be able
to create estimates.101 and estimates.201, for example. That is, I
want to be able to just generate the value of sub.dataset[i] and
follow it or precede it by whatever I choose, not necessarily
quotation marks.
Thanks,
BQ
