[R] rbind common header to file list

Dear all,

I have more than 200 text files in a folder without header - example below.
I would like to read, add a common date header to all the files, and write
(replace) the files.

## Read files
filelist = list.files(pattern = ".*.txt")
datalist = lapply(filelist, function(x)read.table(x, header=F))

## What I want to add
date <- 20000101
datalist _new <- lapply(datalist, function(x) rbind(x, date))

How do I add this date as a common header and replace the files? Any help
will be highly appreciated. Thank you.



## Sample data
xy <- dput(head(x,6))
structure(list(V1 = c("-5.28082885742185,-0.509039307",
"-2.07150878906248,6.264276123", "-1.11102905273435,6.365716553",
"2.37749633789065,14.57106934", "4.9619079589844,18.91350708"
)), row.names = c(NA, 6L), class = "data.frame")
