This is the Debian GNU/Linux r-cran-car package of car, the Companion to
Applied Regression package for GNU R. Car was written by John Fox.
This package was created by Dirk Eddelbuettel <firstname.lastname@example.org>.

The package was renamed from its upstream name 'car' to 'r-cran-car'
to fit the pattern of CRAN (and non-CRAN) packages for R.

This package accompanies J. Fox, An R and S-PLUS Companion to Applied
Regression, Sage, 2002.
The package contains mostly functions for applied regression, linear
models, and generalized linear models, with an emphasis on regression
diagnostics, particularly graphical diagnostic methods. There are also
some utility functions.
With some exceptions, I have tried not to duplicate capabilities in the
basic distribution of R, nor in widely used packages. Some of the
functions in car will use functions in the MASS package, if it is
present; the subsets function graphs objects produced by the regsubsets
function in the leaps package. Where relevant, the functions in car are
consistent with na.action = na.omit or na.exclude.
