Re: [R] Extracting error terms from an lme object

          Are you familiar with Pinheiro and Bates (2000) Mixed-Effects Models in S and S-Plus (Springer)? This book contains detailed answers to many questions of this nature.

          If this is not adequate, please submit another question after first reading the posting guide! "". People who try to answer questions on this list seem more likely to respond to questions that are simple and understandable, and questions more consistent with this guide seem more likely to be simple, self contained, etc.

	  hope this helps.
