Hi Benoit,

A general approach to find p-values:

m <- lm(wt ~ mpg, data=mtcars)

First figure out how to display them on screen:
m # nope
coef(m) # nope
summary(m) # got it

# Then use str to look at the components

# And pick out the one want
coef(summary(m)) # slighty better style, but won't work in general

# In general, you may also need to try
# as sometimes the print method calculates the data you're looking for
