dear r-help.

i want top report a mistake in the documentation help(splineDesign). the last sentence of "value" is
" Each B-spline is defined by a set of 'ord' successive knots so the total number of B-splines is 'length(knots)-ord'. " it is not correct!
one b-spline is defines by a set of 'ord+1' successive knots.

take an easy example:
degree 0 is a constant spline
it has order 1
and you need 2 knots to define the boundaries

do i have to report to somebody else?

yours sincerely,
