if (!is.integer(unlist(n))) stop("L'effectif ...")

You don't need `== TRUE' (and I guess you meant `== FALSE')
An error action can be executed using stop("some error message").
`break' breaks out of the loop (ie goes to the first statement
after the loop), so the print statement cannot be executed.

Are you sure you need n to be a list ?
