If you load the data into R, there is a package called sqldf that
allows one to apply SQL syntax to an R data frame. Is that what you
had in mind? If so, Google 'sqldf R' and you should get a pointer to
its home page.

Search capability within a given RData file at a time (which could be put in a loop) would be good, but the capability to perform joins to data across multiple RData files would be great. These queries might be ad-hoc, so writing an R program to get(load(...)) each file and customize the search in home-grown R code isn't feasible.
