Defines functions getProbeResults

Documented in getProbeResults

#' Obtain probe results from a \code{ResultSet}
#' 
#' It computes the statistics from the \code{MArrayLM} computed with 
#' \code{DiffMeanAnalysis} or \code{DiffVarAnalysis}. This function allows to 
#' specify the contrasts and to get F-statistics for a group of variables. 
#' 
#' @name getProbeResults
#' @aliases getProbeResults 
#' 
#' @param object ResultSet
#' @param rid Name of the results: "DiffMean" for mean differences, "DiffVar" for
#' variance differences. (Default: DiffMean)
#' @param coef Number of the coefficient used to compute the statistics. If a vector
#' is supplied, F-statistics evaluating the global effect of the coefficients are
#' computed. (Default: 2).
#' @param contrast Matrix of contrasts 
#' @param fNames Names of the columns of \code{object} fData that will be added to 
#' the results data.frame.
#' @param ... Further arguments passed to \code{getAssociation}.
#' @return data.frame with the probe results. 
#' @export
