[R] Replace for loop when vector calling itself

I am missing something obvious.

Need to create vector as:

(0, i-1 + TheoP(i) - TheoP(i-1), repeat....) Where i is the index position in the vector and i[1] is always 0.

Found myself having to use a For Loop because I could not get sapply working. Any suggestions ?  

delta <- function(x) {

	start = index[x]
	end = index[x+1] - 1 
	iTheo = start:end
	len = length(iTheo)
	theoP = as.numeric(TheoBA$Bid[iTheo])
	d = vector(mode = "numeric", length= len)
	d[1] = 0
	if (len>1) for (i in 2:len) { d[i] = d[i-1] + theoP[i] - theoP[i-1] }
