[R] How to do this simple integration?

	  I can't parse your metacode, so I really don't understand your 
question.  Have you worked the examples in the "?integrate" help page? 
Also, do you understand the "..." argument to the "integrate" (and 
other) functions"?  If the answer to the latter is "no", I suggest you 
also read Venables and Ripley, Modern Applied Statistics with S.

	  If that is not adequate and you'd like more help from this listserve, 
please submit a simple, self-contained example that seems to come the 
closest to something you want but can't quite get, as suggested in the 
posting guide! "www.R-project.org/posting-guide.html".

	  I know this didn't answer your question, but I hope it helps you.

	  Best Wishes,
	  Spencer Graves
