z1<-function(w)

{

for (i in 1:w)

{

set.seed(i+6)

ss<-0

for (j in 1:5) { set.seed(j+1+(i-1)*6) r<-rnorm(1) ss<-ss+r }

list(ss=ss)

}

}

check.1<-z1(3)

check.1

the results is:

*$ss
*

[1] -0.01516304

what i want is something that looks like this:

j=1

*$ss
*

[1] -2.213343

j=2

*$ss
*

[1] -2.904235

j=3

*$ss
*

[1] -0.01516304

i know that i could use the print command. (see z2)

z2<-function(w)

{

for (i in 1:w)

{

set.seed(i+6)

ss<-0

for (j in 1:5) { set.seed(j+1+(i-1)*6) r<-rnorm(1) ss<-ss+r }

print(ss)

}

}

check.2<-z2(3)

check.2

> check.2<-z2(3)

[1] -2.213343 [1] -2.904235 [1] -0.01516304

> check.2

[1] -0.01516304

the problem with z2 is that only the last value is saved.

what i could do is use matrices like the following: (but i dont want to do this AND WOULD PREFER TO USE list.)

z3<-function(w)

{

results.<-matrix(nrow=w,ncol=1)

colnames(results.)<-c("ss")

for (i in 1:w)

{

set.seed(i+6)

ss<-0

for (j in 1:5) { set.seed(j+1+(i-1)*6) r<-rnorm(1) ss<-ss+r }

results.[i,1]<-ss

}

results.

}

check.3<-z3(3)

check.3

> check.3

ss

[1,] -2.21334260 [2,] -2.90423463 [3,] -0.01516304

what if i have a new program (something different) and i want the following:

j=1

*$a
*

1

2

3

*$b
*

1

2

3

4

5

*$c
*

1

###############

j=2

*$a
*

11

21

31

*$b
*

11

21

31

41

51

*$c
*

11

###############

j=3

*$a
*

21

22

32

*$b
*

21

22

32

42

52

*$c
*

21

MATRICES SEEMS TO BE A GOOD WAY OF DOING THIS (but then you would have to set up three matrices, one for a,b and c). BUT WHAT IF I WANT TO USE THE LIST FUNCTION? i.e. there is a list in the first loop that i want to display!

sorry for the long mail.
