### Testfile for pwtest()


###  panelmodel interface did not respect the effect parameter in pre rev. 200, i. e.
###  for a supplied panelmodel effect="individual" and effect="time" delivered the same
###  result for CRAN version 1.4-0 / r-forge pre rev. 200

### test if the error messages points to the correct possible values of 'effect' argument (only 'individual' or 'time' are allowed)
# pwtest(formula, data=Produc, effect = "individualXX")
# pwtest(pool_prodc, data=Produc, effect = "individualXX")

### test if wrong input model is detected
# fe_prodc <- plm(formula, data=Produc, model="within")
# pwtest(fe_prodc)
