Description

read.coda reads Markov Chain Monte Carlo output in the CODA format produced by OpenBUGS and JAGS. By default, all of the data in the file is read, but the arguments start, end and thin may be used to read a subset of the data. If the arguments given to start, end or thin are incompatible with the data, they are ignored.
