Maarten,

I want to report the regression equation in my manuscript so the reader can plug in their independent variable values and get the correct estimate.  I thought that calculating the difference between the _fracpred_ estimated values and the values estimated using the coefficients from the _fracpoly_ output would be the fastest way to find the "real" constant for reporting purposes.  Is there a better (i.e. easier) way?  Am I misunderstanding the process?

Chris

You can access the parameter estimates using _b[varname], 
but I don't understand why you would want to do this. 
Isn't it much easier to just read the manual entry for 
-fracpoly-? This extensively documents how the variables
are transformed.
