I'm updating my fpc package at the moment and will add some new functions.
I learned that there should be print and summary methods for the key
The purpose of the summary methods seems to be to reduce the
possibly incredibly complex information in the function's output and the
print method (print.summary.foo) should print an overview of the result.
But in some cases the print method will make use of more or less all the
output information of the function. Is there any reason to implement a
summary method in these cases?
