create a sample of the first model stored in a file

Description

make a sample of the first model, that is to say simulate the sequence of the random variables Xi (stay duration) and the sequence of Zi (side effect reporting)

Usage

1
makeSample(file, nbPatient, disXi, disP)

Arguments

file

the filename in which the simulation will be stored

nbPatient

the number of patients for the simulation

disXi

the distribution of the variable Xi : disXi is a 3 elements list : rangen stands for a random positive variable generator ; nbparam for number of parameter of this distribution and param for a list of parameters

disP

the side effect probability (success probability of Zi) p : disP is a 3 elements list : disfun stands for a distribution function ; nbparam for number of parameter of this distribution and param for a list of parameters

Value

a NULL object.
