breakfactor(obj, breaks = NULL, labels = NULL, ...)
Arguments
obj

An object of class "breakpoints" or "breakpointsfull" respectively.

breaks

an integer specifying the number of breaks to extract (only if obj is of class "breakpointsfull"), by default the minimum BIC partition is used.

Examples
# NOT RUN {
## Nile data with one breakpoint: the annual flows drop in 1898
## because the first Ashwan dam was built
data("Nile")
plot(Nile)

## compute breakpoints
bp.nile <- breakpoints(Nile ~ 1)

## fit and visualize segmented and unsegmented model
fm0 <- lm(Nile ~ 1)
fm1 <- lm(Nile ~ breakfactor(bp.nile, breaks = 1))

lines(fitted(fm0), col = 3)
lines(fitted(fm1), col = 4)
lines(bp.nile, breaks = 1)
