[R] A question about function behavior

Hello,

I have been trying to figure this one out, but don't seem to go anywhere. I have a function like this:

a = function(t) {

max(0,t+1)

}

very simple, but if I pass a vector of n values to this function I expect n evaluations of max and instead I get only one value (the largest value of them all..). Is there anyway to do this without invoking a for loop?

thanks,

Jorge
