[R] using data() and determining data types

Hi R Gurus:

I'm using the data() function to get the list of data sets for a package.

I would like to find the class for each data set; i.e.,data.frame, etc.

Using str(), I can find the name of the data set.

However, when I try the class function on the str output, I get
"character", since the name in the str is a character.

I've also tried this with just plain results column.  Still no luck.

Any help would be much appreciated.
