[R] A question on Programming

Dear all. Let say I have a group of codes which will be used in many places
in my overall R-code files. These group of codes will be used within a
for-loop (with a big length, like 10000 times) and also many other places
outside of that for loop. As this group of codes are being used in many
places, I thought to put them within a user-defined function.

Here my question is, is there any speed reduction if I put them within a
function (I think there may be some speed reduction at least within
for-loop, because that loop needs to call that function many times),
relative to if I used that group of codes as-it-is in many places?

Thanks and regards,
