[R-pkg-devel] Assignments to the Global environment

The function downloads the list of index's value and assigned them to 
the individual's name correspond with the indexes. If remove the 
.GlobalEnv, then we can not return the values in output.

Since, the data is updated daily, I think that the storage on device is 
not user friendly enough.

I already used the following code with same R report:

assign(as.character(s), temp3, envir = .GlobalEnv)
