## Collects and saves output.

### Description

This function collects the network, changepoint and hyperparameter samples taken from the MCMC simulation, and saves them to a file if appropriate.

### Usage

```
output(counters, listStock, GLOBvar, HYPERvar, OUTvar)
```

### Arguments

`counters` |
List of counters for the number of moves that have been proposed and accepted. |

`listStock` |
Network, changepoint and hyperparameter samples. |

`GLOBvar` |
Global variables of the MCMC simulation. |

`HYPERvar` |
Hyperparameter variables. |

`OUTvar` |
Output variables, including the output file. |

### Value

Returns a list with an element for each target node which is also a list. Each sublist containts the elements:

`cp_samples` |
Changepoint samples, a NumSamples by MaxNumChangePoints matrix. |

`edge_samples` |
Network samples (with regression parameters), a NumSamples by (NumSegs * NumNodes) matrix. |

`target` |
The target node for this subnetwork. |

`hyper_samples` |
Information sharing prior hyperparameter samples, a NumSamples by NumHyperParams matrix. |

`sampled` |
Sampled iterations. |

`counters` |
Counters for the number of proposed and accepted moves. |
