Augments 'ASReml-R' in Fitting Mixed Models and Packages Generally in Exploring Prediction Differences

Assists in automating the testing of terms in mixed models when 'asreml' is used to fit the models. Also used to display, in tables and graphs, predictions obtained using any model fitting function and to explore differences between predictions. The content falls into the following natural groupings: (i) Data, (ii) Object manipulation functions, (iii) Model modification functions, (iv) Model testing functions, (v) Model diagnostics functions, (vi) Prediction production and presentation functions, (vii) Response transformation functions, and (viii) Miscellaneous functions. A history of the fitting of a sequence of models is kept in a data frame. Procedures are available for choosing models that conform to the hierarchy or marginality principle and for displaying predictions for significant terms in tables and graphs. The 'asreml' package provides a computationally efficient algorithm for fitting mixed models using Residual Maximum Likelihood. It is a commercial packages that can be purchased from 'VSNi' <http://www.vsni.co.uk/> as 'asreml-R', who will supply a zip file for local installation/updating. It is not needed for functions that are methods for 'alldiffs' and 'data.frame' objects. The package 'asremPlus' can also be installed from <http://chris.brien.name/rpackages/>.
