```rm(list=ls())
## Simulating multivariate Gaussian with blockwise correlation
## and piecewise constant vector of parameters
beta <- rep(c(0,1,0,-1,0), c(25,10,25,10,25))
cor <- 0.75
Soo <- toeplitz(cor^(0:(25-1))) ## Toeplitz correlation for irrelevant variable
Sww  <- matrix(cor,10,10) ## bloc correlation between active variables
Sigma <- bdiag(Soo,Sww,Soo,Sww,Soo)
diag(Sigma) <- 1
n <- 50
x <- as.matrix(matrix(rnorm(95*n),n,95) %*% chol(Sigma))
y <- 10 + x %*% beta + rnorm(n,0,10)

## Infinity norm without/with an additional l2 regularization term
## and with structuiring prior
labels <- rep("irrelevant", length(beta))
labels[beta != 0] <- "relevant"
plot(bounded.reg(x,y,lambda2=0) , label=labels) ## a mess
plot(bounded.reg(x,y,lambda2=10), label=labels) ## good guy are the boundaries
plot(bounded.reg(x,y,lambda2=10,struct=solve(Sigma)), label=labels) ## even better

cat("\nDONE.\n")
