dear Enrico,
                       it works. Thanks a lot. I spent over an hour looking for this function in the web, but was bootless. Do you have any way to get functions where you are given what it has to do? The most common case is that you are given a list of functions, but they number to over 100000. Any idea to find them without resorting to help from another R expert?

yours sincerely

Perhaps ?get is what you're looking for:

  A <- 42
  ## [1] 42
