[R] Is this a bug with a simple arithmetic operation with a vector object?

Thats because you have a minus sign before the c. instead of
x<- -c(1,2,3..) use x<- c(1,2,3..)

Hello-
While I was reading a tutorial book for R (actually, for S-Plus:Brian S.
Everitt. A Handbook of Statistical Analysis using S-PLUS. Chapman & Hall,
London, 1994) I tried to execute this simple exercise:
> x <- -c(1,2,3,4,5,6)
> X <- -c(10,11,12,100,-5,-6)
>x+X
[1] -11, -13, -15, -104, 0, 0
As you can see, the added vectors resulted in negative numbers ! (the
answer should have been: [1] 11, 13, 15, 104, 0, 0)
Mind you, this is R 1.2.1 for Windows, under WIndows ME, 64 Mb RAM, pIII
800 MHz. The same thing happens, however, with the recently distributed "R
1.2.2 patched".
Clues, anyone?
Thank you.
Best regards,
Henry
