Convert WinBUGS data file to JAGS data file


bugs2jags converts a WinBUGS data in the format called "S-Plus" (i.e. the format created by the dput function) and writes it in dump format used by JAGS.

NB WinBUGS stores its arrays in row order. This is different from R and JAGS which both store arrays in column order. This difference is taken into account by bugs2jags which will automatically reorder the data in arrays, without changing the dimension.
