I am not sure what you mean by "p is not updated". I took the basic
outline you have and as you can see, p has the correct value after the
loop.
> p<-0.1
> n<-10
> result<-list()
> while (p<=1) {
+ for (i in 1:n) {
+ result[[i]]<-p
+ p<-p+0.1
+ print(p)
+ }
+ }
[1] 0.2
[1] 0.3
[1] 0.4
[1] 0.5
[1] 0.6
[1] 0.7
[1] 0.8
[1] 0.9
[1] 1
[1] 1.1
> p
[1] 1.1

After the initial value of p is assigned, the inner loop is executed but p is not updated. Any help is greatly appreciated.
