Well there is some confusion because it appears to me that Motoki was 
using  tpl2rem on simple.tpl
which has no random effects.
I say this because my  version of tpl2cpp does not produce any error 

Once that is settled
for  tpl2rem it would be simple modify the  cat ...  line to exclude the 
missing files.
