Running WinBUGS and OpenBUGS from R / S-PLUS
originally written by Andrew Gelman <>; changes and packaged by Sibylle Sturtz <> and Uwe Ligges <>. With considerable contributions by Gregor Gorjanc <> and Jouni Kerman <>. Ported to S-PLUS by Insightful Corp.
Using this package, it is possible to call a BUGS model, summarize inferences and convergence in a table and graph, and save the simulations in arrays for easy access in R / S-PLUS. In S-PLUS, the openbugs functionality and the windows emulation functionality is not yet available.
