Dear listers - I am trying to implement the SPLUS example for boostrapping 
coefficients from a linear model -

boot(data.frame, coef(eval(model$call)))

I get errors saying that my statistic is not defined and that the 
replicates are not defined.  Changing this to -

boot(recTTM, statisitic=coef(eval(mod$call)),R=999)

still gives the error about the statistic.  Clearly I do not understand 
what the statisitic is and how to make the coefficients a function as in 
the examples in the help... can someone guide me on syntax?
