Yes, if there are no control statements such as "if" that prevent that return function from being activated.

Here, I have following generic function: Fn1 <- function(x) { ........ return(x) # assume x is calculated in previous steps ......... return(y) # assume y is calculated in previous steps .......... return(z) # assume z is calculated in previous steps } In this case what fn1 will return. Is it the value of "x" all the time? And hence this function will never calculate y and z? Thanks and regards, 	[[alternative HTML version deleted]]_____________________________________________
