## bestglm: Best Subset GLM

### Description

Provides new information criterion BICq as well as AIC, BIC and EBIC for selecting the best model. Additionally, various CV algorithms are also provided.

### Details

 Package: bestglm Type: Package Version: 0.33 Date: 2011-11-03 License: GLP 2.0 or greater LazyData: yes LazyLoad: yes

bestglm is the main function. All other functions are utility functions and are not normally invoked.

Many examples are provided in the vignettes accompanying this package. The vignettes are produced using the R package Sweave and so R scripts can easily be extracted.

The R package xtable is needed for the vignette in SimExperimentBICq.Rnw.

## Not run:
data(zprostate)
train<-(zprostate[zprostate[,10],])[,-10]
#Best subset using AIC
bestglm(train, IC="AIC")
#Best subset using BIC
bestglm(train, IC="BIC")
#Best subset using EBIC
bestglm(train, IC="BICg")
#Best subset using BICg with g=0.5 (tuning parameter)
bestglm(train, IC="BICg", t=0.5)
#Best subset using BICq. Note BICq with q=0.25 is default.
bestglm(train, IC="BICq")
#Best subset using BICq with q=0.5 (equivalent to BIC)
bestglm(train, IC="BICq", t=0.5)
#Remark: set seed since CV depends on it
set.seed(123321123)
bestglm(train, IC="CV", t=10)
#using HTF method
bestglm(train, IC="CV", CVArgs=list(Method="HTF", K=10, REP=1))
#Best subset, logistic regression
