Hi, Ying,

What's wrong with this solution? Do you still get an error? What is your primary goal?

A couple of points:

  1. It's better to use names in your data.frame:

d1 <- data.frame(g = g[1,], e = e[1,])

Then in glm:

fit <- glm(e ~ g, data = d1)

2. Also, you may just be giving us a toy example, but if you don't specify a family argument in glm then you are simply getting the least squares. In that case you should use ?lm instead.

HTH, --sundar
