[ADMB Users] init_vector_vector

Does anyone know if there is a init_vector_vector variable defined so
that different phases and bounds can be used on vectos within a matrix?

Hi Johnoel,

   I actually discovered the problem on my own... I did not realize that
the function call was written in my own GLOBAL_SECTION.  I have another
question though..

   We are attempting to run simulations of a statistical model, and to
benefit our arguement... we would like to make an external call to
ADMB's Quasi-Newton Optimization routine.  
  We have created our own C code that has implemented the Preliminary
Calculations and established the 'Negative Log-Likelihood' (f), but we
would now like to call ADMB's Quasi-Newton Methods to optimize that
Negative Log-Likelihood and return the Result vector with the  'Optimal
Parameter Estimates'
  Is this possible to do?  And/or do you understand what we are trying
to accomplish?

Hi Mitchell,

May I take a look at the model's tpl file?

  I am currently running the ADMB software on a Debian/Linux AMD64
Machine, and the installation ran smoothly, yet when I attempted to
run a ADMB model created in 2005 I ran into some C++ errors as the
complier did not accept the 'itoa' functions created by your library.
I have scanned through the dynamically created C++ code and changed
all implementations of the itoa() calls to a std::stringstream

  I hope that explanation made sense, but otherwise, I simply wish to
add this subject/thread to the google group in the hopes to help
prevent other individuals from running into this problem.   If you
could please add me as a group member, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you very much for your support!
