Hi

having function e.g.

mean.int<-function(x,p=.95)

{x.na<-na.omit(x)

mu<-mean(x.na)

odch<-sd(x.na)

l<-length(x.na)

alfa<-(1-p)/2 mu.d<-mu-qt(1-alfa,l-1)*odch/sqrt(l) mu.h<-mu+qt(1-alfa,l-1)*odch/sqrt(l)

return(data.frame(mu.d,mu,mu.h))

}

result <- mean.int(cbind(rnorm(10),rnorm(10)*2,rnorm(10)+2))

But I susspect that you use some cycle in your function. In that case you need index variable within for loop.

for (i in .... {

var[i] <- ....

}

return(var)

**HTH
