splinek- Spline knot points


splinek returns the spline knot points generated via the spl() model function.

splinek(x, k = 0, predict.points = NULL)
x A numeric vector.
k The number of equally spaced knot points for a cubic smoothing spline. If zero (the default) or omitted, k is set to asreml.options()$knots, in which case the number of knot points used will be min(unique(x), asreml.options()$knots).
predict.points An optional vector of points to be included in the design matrix for prediction.
A list including the following components:
knotpoints The knot points generated by ASReml.
zknots The spline design matrix at the knot points.
