Dear All,

Is it possible to apply "log" link to gaussian family in glm?

Help file saids that the gaussian family has only one permissible link,
 "identity".  Similar descriptions are also in "Modern Applied Statistics with 
S-plus".  But the application of log link to gaussian family seems to be valid
in R.

Thanks for any help.
