Convert WinBUGS data file to JAGS data file
bugs2jags converts a WinBUGS data in the format called "S-Plus"
(i.e. the format created by the
dput function) and writes it in
dump format used by JAGS.
NB WinBUGS stores its arrays in row order. This is different
from R and JAGS which both store arrays in column order. This
difference is taken into account by
bugs2jags which will
automatically reorder the data in arrays, without changing the
Not yet available in S-PLUS.
- name of the input file
- name of the output file
If the input file is saved from WinBUGS, it must be saved in plain text format. The default format for files saved from WinBUGS is a binary compound document format (with extension odc) that cannot be read by bugs2jags.
