[R] Out from an R package

Dear Goran,

It's not clear from your question what you want to do, but my guess is 
that you simply what a "printout" of your results. The usual way to 
obtain that is via the summary() function. In your case summary(Output).

That's typical of statistical modeling functions in R: They return 
objects, which can be used for further computing, rather than directly 
producing printouts.

If my guess is correct, then you probably should learn more about 
statistical modeling in R, and about R in general, before using it in 
your work.

One more thing: I doubt whether the command

	Output <- lmer(G10ln ~ v191_ms + (1 | couno), data = 'G10R')

actually works. The data argument should be a data frame, not the *name* 
of a data frame, i.e., data = G10R .

I hope this helps,
