[R] casting a character vector as an object

I need to compare the ratios of vector sizes like this:
length(object1) / length(object2)
I have many vector objects to compare, so I would like to do it in a loop.
I created a loop like this:
mat1 <- matrix()
for (i in 1:6)
for (j in 1:6)
mat1[i,j] <- length( paste("object",i,sep="")) /
The loop does not work, however, because paste("object",i,sep="") creates
a character vector of length 1. Is there a way to cast this as an object so
that it can be evaluated in the loop?
Thanks in advance
