Reference Classes for Response Modules, "(lm|glm|nls|lmer)Resp"


Reference classes for response modules, including linear models, "lmResp", generalized linear models, "glmResp", nonlinear models, "nlsResp" and linear mixed-effects models, "lmerResp". Each reference class is associated with a C++ class of the same name. As is customary, the generator object for each class has the same name as the class.


All reference classes extend and inherit methods from "envRefClass". Furthermore, "glmResp", "nlsResp" and "lmerResp" all extend the "lmResp" class.


Objects from these reference classes correspond to objects in C++ classes. Methods are invoked on the C++ classes using the external pointer in the ptr field. When saving such an object the external pointer is converted to a null pointer, which is why there are redundant fields containing enough information as R objects to be able to regenerate the C++ object. The convention is that a field whose name begins with an upper-case letter is an R object and the corresponding field whose name begins with the lower-case letter is a method. Access to the external pointer should be through the method, not through the field.
