Re: [R] apply lm() for all the columns of a matrix

Here's a simplified example

p<-1:80+rnorm(80)
dim(p)<-c(2,2,2,10)

We could say that the 4-d array p consists of 2*2*2 = 8 vectors of length 10. So what I'm asking for is a fast way to perform a linear fit to all those vectors.

I'm sorry if I'm causing you to have a headache with all those dimensions :) Kostas
