Dear All,	
	I have a quick question about the bootstrap package for R and was hoping
that someone could help me. I have used the package previously and found it
extremely useful. I was wondering if the package has an option for
designating the number of samples that are taken from the source
distribution/array. For example, if I have a data set containing 100 values
is it possible for the bootstrap package to generate confidence limits for
5 values drawn at random from the original distribution of 100 values, with
say 200 bootstrap replications? If so, could someone please let me know how
to specify the number of random values sampled for each bootstrap
replicate. Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you for your time.
