help with sapply, plot, lines

 Hi, I am trying to plot multiple lines on a graph. The function is particularly simple: sigma<-function(lambda) atm-2*rr*(lambda-0.5)+16*str*(lambda-0.5)^2 which uses the variables atm, rr and str... I define these as such: atm<-0.4 rr<-0.2 str<-0.1 and this plots fine: plot(seq(0.01,0.99,0.01),sigma(seq(0.01,0.99,0.01)),ylim=c(0,1)) Now, I want to plot the same function for different values of str, as follows: sapply(seq(0,0.3,0.05),function(s) {str<-s; lines(seq(0.01,0.99,0.01),sigma(seq(0.01,0.99,0.01)))}) Hoping that sigma will lexically scope into str and that lines will appear on the same plot as the one I first drew above. Instead, I just get this: > sapply(seq(0,0.3,0.05),function(s) {str<-s; lines(seq(0.01,0.99,0.01),sigma(seq(0.01,0.99,0.01)))}) [[1]] NULL [[2]] NULL [[3]] NULL [[4]] NULL [[5]] NULL [[6]] NULL [[7]] NULL and the plot does not change. Any assistance appreciated.
