### Examples

print("Example 1.8.1")

attach(elasticband)     # R now knows where to find stretch and distance
plot(stretch, distance) # Alternative: plot(distance ~ stretch)
detach(elasticband)

print("Lists - Example 12.7")

elastic.lm <- lm(distance ~ stretch, data=elasticband)
names(elastic.lm)
elastic.lm$coefficients elastic.lm[["coefficients"]] pause() elastic.lm[[1]] pause() elastic.lm[1] pause() options(digits=3) elastic.lm$residuals
pause()

elastic.lm$call pause() mode(elastic.lm$call)
