[ADMB Users] Interpolation while optimising

That's good to hear. I was wondering though if they are there or not in the current version published on the website (9.1), as I can't seem to get access to them?

The line  
generates an "out of scope" compiler error:

g++ -c -O3 -Wno-deprecated -D__GNUDOS__  -Dlinux -DOPT_LIB -DUSE_LAPLACE -fpermissive -I. -Ic:/admb/gcc440/include Forward.cpp
Forward.cpp: In member function 'virtual void model_parameters::report()':
Forward.cpp:166: error: 'spline' was not declared in this scope

Using "spine" instead of "spline" generates a corresponding error.

Running release 9.1 on Win XP.

I have replaced those functions that you mentioned ( spine() and
splint() ). They are still in the replacement branch but they will be
merged into the trunk soon. The names will be the same and they should
produce the same output as the old ones. They will be replaced with
the new beta release.
