  I am trying to convert a small python computation to R but my R version
gets the wrong result.

The python code:
import math import log
x = log(2)
for i in range(3,7):
   x = log(i)**x

My R-version:
x <- log10(2)
for (i in 3:6) {
    x <- log10(i)**x
[1] 0.8207096


range(3,7) (Python) is the same as 3:6 (R)
log() (Python) is the same as log10 (R)

What can be wrong?
