Jim and List,

Thank you for the prompt reply. Perhaps I should have been more specific in the way I phrased the question.

The code you gave would return the max value just one time. I was interested in getting as many max values generated by rnorm(rpois(1,10)) as specified by:

> replicate(5,replicate(10 ... )))))

In the end, I expect to get 10 x 5 max values.

In that context, how might the code be changed?
