check_inputs: Check the inputs to the estimate function

Description Usage Arguments Value

View source: R/mle.R

Description

This function checks the start_vlaues, data, availabilities, draws and fixedparams for validity. If this function runs without error, then the inputs are valid for the maxLikelihood function. These checks are important, because an error in the internal C++ code will cause the Rstudio session to crash. Incidentally, if there is concern of this happening, it is recommended to run the script from the command line, using Rscript.
