R-beta: SEs for one-param MLE in R?

Simple-mindedly I tried getting MLE and SE for one-parameter model in the
same way as for multi-param models.


gives the answer 1.  The Hessian has only one entry, not really a matrix.
diag(x) gives 1 if x is just a single number.

Is this what I should be doing to get SE for MLE?

Thanks very much for any help!

BTW thanks for the help on readline.  I found the readline files on the
web and installed (strangely missing from Slackware distrib).  Now I have
bash-like command line interface in R. Excellent!!
