[R] SAS like Macro variable substituion?

I'd like to use a string to refer to an R object with the end
objective of going through a loop and saving various files of the same
name with different contents using a numbered suffix.

# This will be the loop counter and file suffix.
master.i <- 1

# This is the generic file name.
unislopes <- c(1,2,3)

# This assigns the data to the correct file name "unislopes1".

# This is the problem.  The first parameter of the "save" function
requires an R object which I'm not sure how to reference using the
suffix "1".  The second part requires text so it can use the
paste function.

Any ideas?
