Dear all,
The help file for the generic function vcov states

"Classes with methods for this function include: 'lm', 'glm', 'nls', 'lme',
'gls', 'coxph' and 'survreg' (the last two in package 'survival')."

Since, I am not able to use vcov.coxph(), I am wondering whether I am
missing something (as I suspect..)


> o<- coxph( Surv(time, status) ~ x + strata(sex), test1)  #example from
> vcov(o)  #of course I could use o$var
Error in vcov(o) : no applicable method for "vcov"
