Hi Dave,

Thank you very much for the code.

I included the globals section:

 #include <betai.cpp>
 #include <dfbetai.cpp>
 #include <df1b2invcumdbeta.cpp>

which gave the linking error:

g++ -s -L"/usr/local/admb"/lib -L"/usr/local/admb"/contrib fmi.o
-ldf1b2o -ladmod -lcontribo -ladt -lado -ldf1b2o -ladmod -ladt -lado
-lcontribo -o fmi
fmi.o: In function `betacf(prevariable const&, prevariable const&,
double, int)':
fmi.cpp:(.text+0x4a16): undefined reference to
`dvariable::operator=(df1_two_variable const&)'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Commenting out:

//#include <dfbetai.cpp>

works, with the minor change of placing the random effect in the third position


in contrast with the ADMB-RE manual.

It might be interesting to to get an example/benchmark together based
on the the binomial-beta model in Lee and Nelder (1996) using the data
in Crowder (1978).

Thanks very much for your time and help.

Best regards,
