Good morning everyone (or maybe good evening)

Is there a counterpart to the s-plus function "probplot" (which
provides a qq-plot for "survreg"-objects)? Or do exist other
(rather simple) possibilities to check the assumptions of the

I have another question to the author(s) of summary.survreg:
Why does summary(...,times=sort(x)) not give the same result as
summary(...,censored=TRUE) ? Example:


x <-   c(1,1,2,4,4,4,6,9)
status <- c(1,0,1,1,1,0,1,1) 

r.sf <- survfit(Surv(x, status)~1, type='kaplan-meier',conf.type="none")

summary(r.sf,censored=TRUE) # the censored data are not listed (?)
