Defines functions estimateContrasts

Documented in estimateContrasts

#' Contrast Estimates
#' Calculates and prints Tukey multiple confidence intervals for contrasts in
#' one or two-way ANOVA.
#' @param contrast.matrix a matrix of contrast coefficients. Separate rows of
#' the matrix contain the contrast coefficients for that particular contrast,
#' and a column for level of the factor.
#' @param fit output from the \code{lm} function.
#' @param row if \code{TRUE}, and the ANOVA is two-way, then contrasts in the row effects
#' are printed, otherwise contrasts in the column effects are printed. Ignored
#' if the ANOVA is one-way.
#' @param alpha the nominal error rate for the multiple confidence intervals.
#' @param L number of contrasts. If NULL, L will be set to the number of rows
#' in the contrast matrix, otherwise L will be as specified.
#' @param FUN optional function to be applied to estimates and confidence intervals.
#' Typically for backtransformation operations.
#' @return Returns a matrix whose rows correspond to the different contrasts
#' being estimated and whose columns correspond to the point estimate of the
#' contrast, the Tukey lower and upper limits of the confidence interval, the
#' unadjusted p-value, the Tukey and Bonferroni p-values.
#' @seealso \code{\link{summary1way}}, \code{\link{summary2way}}, \code{\link{multipleComp}}
#' @note: This function is no longer exported as it should never be called by the user. It will ultimately be removed.
