[R] (Newbie)Basic Basic global vs. local variables

My R code has got too complex to have a non-modular approach. Ive done some coding in other languages before, but I somehow cant figure out R's general rules for global and local variables. I have put a simple code below, if anyone can show me what i need to add to make this work, i would greatly appreciate it!

#----------------------------------------
g_Means<-numeric()   

defineSamples<- function()

{

		g_Means<-5
	}

runit<-function()

{
defineSamples() g_Means #####<<This returns "numeric(0)", and not "5" }

runit()

#----------------------------

Basically I can not get the parameter I set from a global scale...
