`Modern Applied Statistics with S-PLUS'
=======================================

==============================
Errata and comments for the second printing of the third edition.
p. 22 l.4 logical columns are not converted to character in S-PLUS
5.x and 6.x, although the statement is correct for S-PLUS 3.x,
4.x and R.
p. 41 l.-6 a[3,5,9] should be a[2,5,10]
p. 134 (5.4) 1/b should be 1/(nb)
p. 170 last line, displayed equation. For u <= 1 read |u| <= 1,
similarly read |u| > 1 for u >= 1.
p. 188 l.-6 names(cpus)[2:7]
Our code omitted to transform chmax: fortunately this makes
very little difference.
p. 203 l.2 of text. Replace `z ratio' by `t-value'.
p. 231 display zeta_k - eta
immediately below: remove `< zeta_{K+1}'
p. 252 confint.profile.nls needed to be altered for a fit wth just one
parameter.
p. 325 The sum of squares 0.17692 is not a cross-validated estimate of
prediction accuracy like the others for this dataset.
p. 351 l.8 tp <- factor(Cushings$Type[1:21])
is used to drop unused levels of the factor. On current systems
tp <- Cushings$Type[1:21, drop=T]
would be a better alternative, but both should work.
p. 451 An HTML-based help.start() is available under S-PLUS 5.1 (but
not 5.0). A Java-based help.start() is available under S-PLUS 6.0.
