`formula.1` |
The part of formula that is free of terms involving thresholded variables |

`formula.2` |
The part of formula that is only composed of thresholded variables |

`data` |
data frame. |

`type` |
step: flat before and after change point; hinge: flat before and slope after change point; segmented: slope before and after change point |

`est.method` |
string. Better leave it at NULL. grid: grid search; smoothapprox: smooth approximation |

`var.type` |
string. Different methods for estimating covariance matrix and constructing confidence intervals |

`aux.fit` |
a model fit object that is needed for model-robust estimation of covariance matrix |

`grid.size` |
integer. |

`test.inv.ci` |
Boolean, whether or not to find test-inversion confidence interval for threshold |

`ci.bootstrap.size` |
integer, number of bootstrap |

`alpha` |
double, norminal type I error rate |

`save.boot` |
Boolean, whether to save bootstrap samples |

`b.` |
a parameter controlling approximation of step function by logistic function in optimization |

`lb.quantile` |
lower bound of the search range for change point estimate |

`ub.quantile` |
upper bound of the search range for change point estimate |

`tol` |
numeric. Stopping criterion on the coefficient estimate. |

`maxit` |
integer. Maximum number of iterations in the outer loop of optimization. |

`chngpt.init` |
numeric. Initial value for the change point. |

`family` |
passed to glm |

`weights` |
passed to glm |

`verbose` |
Boolean. |

`x` |
chngptm fit object. |

`object` |
chngptm fit object. |

`...` |
arguments passed to glm or coxph |

`m.out.of.n` |
whether to perform m out of n bootstrap |

Without lb.quantile and ub.quantile, finite sample performance of estimator drops considerably! When est.method is smoothapprox, Newton-Raphson is done with initial values chosen by change point hypothesis testing. The testing procedure may be less subjective to finite sample volatility.

A an object of type chngptm with the following components

`converged` |
Boolean |

`coefficients` |
vector. Estimated coefficients. The last element, named ".chngpt", is the estimated change point |

`test` |
htest. Max score test results |

`iter` |
integer. Number of iterations |
