Dear R-Help,

I am trying to run the following:

apply(Data,1, fit-non-linear-curve)

where fit-non-linear-curve() is a bootstrapping procedure that uses the
nls() function. 

Unsuprisingly there are some lines in the Data for which the nls()
procedure fails, probably due to bad starting values.  How do I make R just
give up on that particular line of Data and carry on? I am using R 0.99 on
windows NT.

I would like to echo the praises of the R-development team.
