```Hi Gaspar:

I'm probably oversimplifying, but you could try:
> x <- 1:10
> y <- 3 + 2*x + runif(10)
> x.lm <- lm(y~x)
> summary(x.lm)

Call:
lm(formula = y ~ x)

Residuals:
Min       1Q   Median       3Q      Max
-0.43425 -0.19559  0.03431  0.20469  0.40409

Coefficients:

Hi

i´m starting to work with R to do some regressions

now, i need to extract a single estimated coeficient
so that i can use it for further calculations
i´ve been trying the coef() command (unsuccesfully)

the 3000 pages reference manual does not give enough info,
is there a way that one can solve these kind of problems
without wasting so much time to find about an apparently
simple command?

regards
