My foolish move for this week: I'm going to go way out on a limb and
guess what the OP wanted was something like this.
i=1, foo = x*exp(-x)
i=2, foo= x^2*exp(-x)
i=3, foo = x^3*exp(-x)
.
.
.
In which case he really should create a vector bar<-rep(na,5) ,
and then inside the loop,
bar[i]<-x^i*foo(x)

I need to update posterior dist function upon the coming results and
find the posterior mean each time.
