David,
If below is exactly what you typed, check your code again, I think you
are missing a '}' after the last 2 parentheses.
HTH,
Bret

I'm trying to figure out R, a piece at a time, hours at a time... I
was trying to copy the sample function in, "An Introduction to R" (for
version 2.1.0) by W. N. Venables, D. M. Smith, page 42. Section 10.1
"Simple examples" provides a sample function which I tried to duplicate
(I'm using Mac OS X 10.3.9, and "R for Mac OS X Aqua GUI v1.11). The
following is what I typed and the last line is R's response when I hit
the return key after the penultimate line. I've re-checked and
re-typed the code many times to no avail. I wasn't able to find this
issue using search options, either. Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
> twosam<-function(y1, y2) {
+ n1<-length(y1);n2 <-length(y2)
+ yb1<-mean(y1); yb2<-mean(y2)
+ s1<-var(y1);s2<-var(y2)
+ s<-((n1-1)*s1 + (n2-1)*s2)/(n1+n2-2)
+ tst<-(yb1-yb2)/sqrt(s*(1/n1+1/n2))
Error: syntax error
