Hi Elyakhlifi,
I'm not a statistics expert and so can't intuit what your code is
doing easily. I also can't just run the code as supplied, as it uses
variables and data structures you haven't specified.
>From a coding perspective, there are several issues though that will
almost certainly make a difference.
You need to read about SCOPE.
Try isolating functions, and strictly define inputs and outputs. Your
function magically uses variables E, exple, lst, lst1, E, and others.
Don't do this! Try to make your functions a little more generic and
restrict using global variables!
try defining your function (and I would use a better name too, but
that is personal preference!) to
NK <- function(x, E, exple) {
lst<- list()
lst1<-list()
lst2<-list()
...
and then return(lst)
}
USE the result of the function by doing this:
returned.lst <- NK(whatever... )
and not expecting NK to magically set a variable in the global scope.
It is possible to set variables in the parent scope from a function,
but I would suggest you don't even look up how to do this!
Best wishes,
Mark
