#' Extract information from pim.environment and pim.poset objects
#' 
#' These functions serve to extract the information contained
#' in the objects of class \code{\link{pim.environment}} and 
#' \code{\link{pim.poset}}. 
#' 
#' @param x an object of class \code{pim.environment} or \code{pim.poset}

#' contained in the \code{pim.environment}
#' 
#' @seealso \code{\link{nobs}}, \code{\link{poset}}, \code{\link{is.complete}}

#' of the variables in the object. For an object of class \code{pim.poset},
