Hello,

slight minor bug in multicomp() (S-Plus 4.5,
release 2 on Windows NT):

In the print out of print.multicomp(), the function
gets the response variable name wrong:

Example page 446 in the "guide to statistics manual":

> aovout.fuel _ aov(Fuel~Type,fuel.frame)
> multicomp(aovout.fuel,focus="Type")

95 % simultaneous confidence intervals for specified
linear combinations, by the Tukey method

critical point: 2.9545
response variable: Type
^^^^^

intervals excluding 0 are flagged by '****'

Estimate Std.Error Lower Bound Upper Bound
Compact-Large -0.800 0.267 -1.590 -0.0116 ****
Compact-Medium -0.434 0.160 -0.906 0.0387
...

Should be "Fuel", and not "Type". THe problem lies probably in
the first lines of multicomp.lm, where "ylabel", the label
for the response, is defined.
