## Description:
## Encapsulate the three canonical MCMC options in a formal class.
##
## History:
## 10/12/2009   copy from the master package
## 25/05/2010   include the optional argument "samples" in the constructor
## 08/07/2010   coerce default iterations to integer in constructor
## 13/12/2010   "samples" must have default value in the ctr

##' Constructor for class McmcOptions
##'
##' Note that the argument \code{samples} is included for convenience only -
##' you can specify it instead of \code{iterations}.
##' 
##' @param iterations number of MCMC iterations (default: \code{110,000})
##' @param burnin number of burn-in iterations which are not saved (default:
##' \code{10,000}) 
##' @param step only every step-th iteration is saved after the burn-in
##' (default: \code{10})
##' @param samples number of resulting samples (by default \code{10,000} will result)
##' @return the freshly built object of class \code{\linkS4class{McmcOptions}}

##' @export
