It determines the orderrestricted maximum likelihood estimates and the corresponding log likelihood for the hypothesis of interest. Additionally it gives the (unconstrained) maximum likelihood estimates and the active contraints.
1 2 
formula 
an object of class "formula" (or one that can be coerced to that class): a symbolic description of the model to be fitted. 
data 
an optional data frame, list or environment (or object coercible by as.data.frame to a data frame) containing the variables in the model. If not found in data, the variables are taken from environment(formula), typically the environment from which lm is called. 
set 
either a character string (see 
direction 
direction of the order constraints 
n 
a (possibly named) vector of sample sizes for each group 
base 
column of the constraint matrix representing a control group 
control 
a list of control arguments; see

This function is just a wrapper for repeated calls of
orlm
with different constraint definitions.
Predefined lists with constraintsets can be constructed with function constrSet
.
an object of class list
