Various R programming tools for model fitting.
The estimable() function now returns objects that are of class 'estimable'.
The confidence interval function ci() now has a method for 'estimable' objects, with the same layout as for 'lm' objects, making it easier to combine confidence information about model parameters and estimable functions into a single table.
Update est.mer() to work with recent versions of lme4 which changed 'mer' objects from S3 to S4 class
Changes to pass new R CMD check tests
The 'Design' package has been replaced my 'rms', so update man page references.
Correct several minor .Rd syntax errors
Move extra copyright text to Author field instead of License field.
Lower and upper end of confidence interval for lmer objects were reversed in est.lmer().
Correct Greg's email address in two help files.
Problem: R CMD check errors under development version of R 2.5.0 Solution:
Problem: estimable() was failing for lmer objects. Solution:
Updated Greg's email address.
Add support for lmer (lme version 4) objects to ci(), estimable(), and fit.contrast() via code contributed by Randall C Johnson.
Add simplfied coefficient specification to estimable() based on a function provided by Randall C Johnson. It is now possible to do things like: estimable(reg, c("xB"=1,"xD"=-1)) instead of: estimable(reg, c( 0, 1, 0, -1)) which should make estimable() much easier to use for large models.
Added DESCRIPTION and removed DESCRIPTION.in
Updated NAMESPACE file
