[R] R.squared in summary.lm with weights

Martin -
Thanks, but although hatvalues() is useful for calculating PRESS, I can't find anything directly relevant to my question in the influence help pages. After some burrowing in the literature I'm doubting there is an answer out there (PRESS R^2 is always presented in a fairly ad hoc way).
This is a new topic, as you say, and perhaps better handled on a statistics list.

--> A new topic really.

I think you should find the answer on the help pages (and in the
source) of

     ? influence.measures  (which documents a host of such functions)
     ? influence

Note that influence is S3 generic and


indicates that the 'lm' and 'glm' methods are hidden.
Of course I do recommend reading the real R source code (which
   also contains the comments and has some logical order in all the
   function definitions),
but you can use   stats ::: influence.lm
to show a version of the function that looks not too different
from the source.
