Read a List of Matrices from a File for Repeated Times to Events

Description

read.surv reads sets of lines of data from a file. Each set may contain a series of duration times followed by a censor indicator for the last value (all=FALSE) or a series of pairs of times followed by their censor indicators (all=TRUE).

Usage

1
read.surv(file="", skip=0, nlines=1, cumulative=TRUE, all=TRUE)

Arguments

file

Name of the file to read

skip

Number of lines to skip at the beginning of the file

nlines

Number of lines in each series of duration times

cumulative

If TRUE, the times are cumulative and differences are taken to obtain times between events. Otherwise, the times are used unchanged.

all

If TRUE, all times have accompanying censor indicators; otherwise, only the last one does.

Value

A list containing a list of vectors with the series of times and a vector of censor indicators for the last time of each series is returned.
