I am experimenting with the function predict() in two versions of R and
the R extension package "survival".
-- end inclusion ----
The question was: this works under survival 2.35-8, but not survival
Answer: The predict and underlying model.frame functions for coxph were
brought into line with lm and other models. The major advantage is that
I now deal with factors and data dependent predictors like ns()
You've shown a disadvantage of which I was not aware. Using your
example but replacing coxph() by lm() with otime ~x as the model I get a
similar failure. I'd like to ask a wider audience of R-devel since it
is bigger than coxph.
