jags(1) just another gibbs sampler


jags [options] [scriptfile]


jags is a program for analysis of Bayesian hierarchical models using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulation not wholly unlike BUGS. If given a scriptfile argument, jags will be started in batch mode. Otherwise it will be started in interactive mode.


jags accepts the following options:
-d, --debugger=NAME
Run jags through debugger NAME
Pass ARGS as arguments to the debugger
