Dear R-experts,
Here below my reproducible example. No error message but I can not get a result. I get "NaN" as a result. I don't understand what is going on.

fit <- robustgam::robustgam(...) produces a list, with no class attached,
so residuals(fit) invokes the default method for residuals(), which essentially returns the 'residuals' component of 'fit'. There is no such component so it returns NULL, an object of length zero. The mean of a length-zero object is NaN. It would make sense for mean(NULL) or sum(NULL) to give an error since they are only meant to work on numbers. However this would probably break some existing code, since there are various functions that return NULL instead of numeric(0). -Bill On Fri, Nov 13, 2020 at 2:05 PM varin sacha via R-help <[hidden email]> wrote: > Dear R-experts, > > Here below my reproducible example.

Dear Bill,
Many thanks for your response. I got it.
