Help Process the `specials' Argument of the `terms' Function.

Given a terms structure and a desired special name, this returns an index appropriate for subscripting the terms structure and another appropriate for the data frame.

Usage
untangle.specials(tt, special, order=1)
Arguments
tt

Value

vars

a vector of variable names, as would be found in the data frame, of the specials.

terms

a numeric vector, suitable for subscripting the terms structure, that indexes the terms in the expanded model formula which involve the special.
