Re: [R] How to do this simple integration?

          I can't parse your metacode, so I really don't understand your question. Have you worked the examples in the "?integrate" help page? Also, do you understand the "..." argument to the "integrate" (and other) functions"? If the answer to the latter is "no", I suggest you also read Venables and Ripley, Modern Applied Statistics with S.

          If that is not adequate and you'd like more help from this listserve, please submit a simple, self-contained example that seems to come the closest to something you want but can't quite get, as suggested in the posting guide! "".

          I know this didn't answer your question, but I hope it helps you.
