Dear all,

My questions are that if I have
x<-rnorm(50)
dim(x)<-c(10,5)
y=1:5
Z<-matrix(0,NROW(x),NROW(y))
for (j in 1:NROW(y)) Z[,j]<-x[,j]*y[j]
1. Is there any other way to write this without 'for'
loop?

Z <- x * y

seems to do the job....

2. and if I don't know the dimension of x, which could
be only 1 column, how could I write the command
without using if (NCOL(x)==1), or something like that?
(in case I want to include them in my function.

still seems to do the job...

Example of x is a vector.
x<-rnorm(10)
y=2
Z<-matrix(0,NROW(x),NROW(y))
for (j in 1:NROW(y)) Z[,j]<-x[,j]*y[j]
Error in x[, j] : incorrect number of dimensions




note: I discovered above that assignment like 'y=2' where now valid....
(learn something new evryday on r-help.... ;-) )

Could anyone please help me to solve these problem?
Thank you very much for your kindness.
