Subject: [NMusers] NONMEM Tips #18 - Oct 22, 2003 - Alison's nmsee5 for summarizing	 NONMEM output
Date: 10/22/2003 1:25 PM

This tip is to remind users of a free utility written by Alison Boeckmann
for summarizing NONMEM output.  The code for this utility, nmsee5.for, and
instructions are available at:

ftp://ftp.globomaxnm.com/Public/nonmem/nmsee/

To use the utility, compile the fortran code to create the executable
nmsee5.exe, e.g.:

c:\nmv\run> df nmsee5.for

Then redirect the result file of a NONMEM or PDx-Pop run to the nmsee5.exe
program:

c:\nmv\run> nmsee5 < 101.res

The output will be sent to the console and look something like this:

PROBLEM NO.  1

The output of nmsee5.exe can also be saved to a file as follows:

c:\nmv\run> nmsee5 < 101.res > 101.sum

A variety of command line options are available for use with nmsee5 and are
described in the directions.
