[R] line numbers

Check out ?sprintf, ?cat, ?noquote, ?format, ?formatC, ?print.

Also maybe ?sub, ?gsub, ?chartr, ?grep.

To view the code that prints summary(lm(...whatever...)), put this on
a line by itself:


The summary statement mentioned above outputs an object of
class "summary.lm" and the S3 method to print summary.lm
objects is called print.summary.lm and that is contained in the
stats namespace.

However, the output looks unattractive because it displays line numbers next to each new variable, it is difficult to remove the R variable name from the output, and I cannot print test without it using quotation marks.  The only way I have found around most of these issues is to create a data.frame such as:
> data.frame("Minimum BMD"=c(minimumBMD,minimumBMD.time,paste(100*(1-Climit.level),"%"),
> minimumBMD.ConfidenceLimit,

I know this must be possible because many functions (e.g. summary(lm(y~x))) will display output nicely and include text.
