# Merge two lists into single list containing single character vectors R

Okay I'm stumped, I know there are answers about merging lists, and my attempt builds on those answers, but they don't return a single char vector. I have a function that merges lists but the values are separate character vectors:

I dont want the characters as separate strings

``````csc.list <- mapply(c, rep("CSC", 16), c(1:16), SIMPLIFY=FALSE)

\$CSC
[1] "CSC" "1"
\$CSC
[1] "CSC" "2"
...
``````

I don't know how to combine the characters in rows with a wierd heading

``````csc.list <- mapply(unlist, c(mapply(c, rep("CSC", 16), c(1:16), SIMPLIFY=FALSE)))

CSC   CSC   CSC   CSC   CSC   ...
[1,] "CSC" "CSC" "CSC" "CSC" "CSC" ...
[2,] "1"   "2"   "3"   "4"   "5"   ...
``````

### Desired Result of two merged lists

``````c("CSC 1", "CSC 2", "CSC 3", "CSC 4", "CSC 5", ... , "CSC 16")

[1] "CSC 1" "CSC 2" "CSC 3" "CSC 4" "CSC 5" ... "CSC 16"
``````

`n`
lists into single vector of merged characters:

``````csc.list <- mapply(c, rep("CSC", 16), c(1:16), rep(".R", 16), SIMPLIFY=FALSE)
lalalala <- f(csc.list)
``````

### Desired result of three merged lists

``````[1] "CSC 1.R" "CSC 2.R" ...
``````

``````csc.list <- mapply(c, rep("CSC", 16), c(1:16), SIMPLIFY=FALSE)
