[S] Changing a list to a vector

This is rather a simple question that I remember running into about a year
ago and solving -- but I cannot remember how I did it.

I have a list whose components are numeric vectors of various
lengths. What I want to do is to strip the "list" structure from the object
so that I get a vector consisting of all the components glued together.
This is part of a program, so I could -- I guess -- write a little program
that trudges its way through the list tacking vectors on to the end of a
long train of numbers. But I think there is a function in Splus that will
do this for me quickly. Searches through the Splus 3.3 and 4 help files and
manuals have turned up nothing. Must be looking under the wrong word.

Any help appreciated. Thanks.
