The oneway function wraps a number of analysis of variance functions into one convenient interface that is similar to the oneway anova command in SPSS.
oneway(y, x, posthoc=NULL, means=FALSE, fullDescribe=FALSE, levene=FALSE, plot=FALSE, digits=2, omegasq = TRUE, etasq = TRUE, corrections = FALSE, pvalueDigits=3, t=FALSE, conf.level=.95, posthocLetters = FALSE, posthocLetterAlpha = .05, silent=FALSE)
y has to be a numeric vector.
x has to be vector that either is a factor or can be converted into one.
Which post-hoc tests to conduct. Valid values are any correction methods in p.adjust.methods (at the time of writing of this document, "holm", "hochberg", "hommel", "bonferroni", "BH", "BY", "fdr", "none"), as well as "tukey" and "games-howell".
Whether to show the means for the y variable in each of the groups determined by the x variable.
If TRUE, not only the means are shown, but all statistics acquired through the 'describe' function in the 'psych' package are shown.
Whether to show a plot of the means of the y variable in each of the groups determined by the x variable.
The number of digits to show in the output.
Whether to show the omega squared effect size.
Whether to show the eta squared effect size (this is biased and generally advised against; omega squared is less biased).
Whether to show the corrections for unequal variances (Welch and Brown-Forsythe).
The number of digits to show for p-values; smaller p-values will be shown as <.001 or <.0001 etc.
Whether to transpose the dataframes with the means (if requested) and the anova results. This can be useful for blind people.
Confidence level to use when computing the confidence interval for eta^2. Note that the function we use doubles the 'unconfidence' level to maintain consistency with the NHST value (see http://yatani.jp/HCIstats/ANOVA#RCodeOneWay, http://daniellakens.blogspot.nl/2014/06/calculating-confidence-intervals-for.html or Steiger, J.

Psychological methods, 9(2), 164-82. doi:10.1037/1082-989X.9.2.164
Whether to also compute and show the letters signifying differences between groups when conducting post hoc tests. This requires package
multcompView to be installed.
The alpha to use when determining whether groups have different means when using
Whether to show warnings and other diagnostic information or remain silent.
A list of three elements:
List with input arguments
List of intermediate objects, such as the aov and Anova (from the car package) objects.
List with etasq, the effect size, and dat, a dataframe with the Oneway Anova results.
