Check out ?try  and ?trycatch .
THose are specifically designed to allow you to take note of an error 
condition while still running your function/script.

Dear R users,

I am in trouble using the function


in a loop.

When it happens that I have a singular matrix, I get an error message 
saying so and the loop stops.

My question is if there in any way to keep on going in the loop.

Thank you in advance,
