The smartpred library
The smartpred library consists of some modified existing and
new functions to fix a problem relating to modelling functions
lm and glm. The modified versions now remember the
"parameters" of special smartened functions (bs, ns,
scale and poly are supplied). We call this "smart"
prediction. The parameters are saved on the fitted model object, and are
retrieved when predictions are made from the model. Users can easily
smarten their own functions - guidelines are given.
