Hi, all.

Yet another beginner to R : )

I wonder, how it's possible to get the value of a coefficient from the object produced by cor.test() ?

> cor.test(a, b, method="spearman")

        Spearman's rank correlation rho

data: a and b
S = 21554.28, p-value = 2.496e-11
alternative hypothesis: true rho is not equal to 0 sample estimates:


Warning message:
In cor.test.default(a, b, method = "spearman") :   Cannot compute exact p-values with ties

So, I'd like to do something like :

> result = cor.test(...)
> rho = result.rho()

Thanks in advance for helping !
