extracting standard errors (se) from $output

Hi there,
I can't see the SEs in $output... I guess that means they are computed by summary()?
But I also don't see how to extract them programatically from the output of summary(fit)

none of these work:
x = summary(fit)
x$SE; x$standard_error; x$error_estimate

any clues?

x below is the captured

x below is the captured result of the summary function.

As an aside, in other R

As an aside, in other R parameter summary output tables, the "parameter estimate" column is called "Estimate" and "error estimate" is called "Std.Error".

I think it would be useful to change to these conventions before too many scripts start using the current non-standard names for the parameters.

answering own question:

summary(fit)->x
x$parameters->y

y$"error estimate"

y$"parameter estimate"

CI95 = y$"error estimate" *1.96
out = data.frame(cbind(y$"parameter estimate" - CI95,y$"parameter estimate" + CI95))
names(out)<-c("lower95", "upper95")
cbind(y,out)
