epi.RtoBUGS {epiR}R Documentation

R to WinBUGS data conversion

Description

Writes data from an R list to a text file in WinBUGS-compatible format.

Usage

epi.RtoBUGS(datalist, towhere)

Arguments

datalist

a list (normally, with named elements) which may include scalars, vectors, matrices, arrays of any number of dimensions, and data frames.

towhere

a character string identifying where the file is to be written.

Details

The function doesn't check to ensure that only numbers are being produced. In particular, factor labels in a dataframe will be output to the file, which normally won't be desired.
