fnenvir {rmutil}R Documentation

Check Covariates and Parameters of a Function

Description

fnenvir finds the covariates and parameters in a function and can modify it so that the covariates used in it are found in the data object specified by .envir.

If the data object has class, repeated, the key word times in a function will use the response times from the data object as a covariate.

Usage

fnenvir(.z, .envir=sys.frame(sys.parent()), .name=NULL, .expand=TRUE,
        .response=FALSE)

Arguments

.z A function.
.envir The environment or data object of class, repeated, tccov, or tvcov, in which the function is to be interpreted.
.name Character string giving the name of the data object specified by .envir. Ignored unless the latter is such an object and only necessary when fnenvir is called within other functions.
.expand If TRUE, expand functions with only time-constant covariates to return one value per observation instead of one value per individual. Ignored unless .envir is an object of class, repeated.
.response If TRUE, any response variable can be used in the function. If FALSE, checks are made that the response is not also used as a covariate.

Value

The (modified) function, of class formulafn, is returned with its attributes giving the (new) model function, the covariate names, and the parameter names.
