Subject: nmsee

Some years ago, I put a little program nmsee in the NONMEM repository. Its in the directory NMSEE.DIR, under NONMEM.DIR.

I've just changed both nmsee.for (the source code) and nmsee.bat (the MS/DOS batch file, which assumes that the compiled nmsee.exe is renamed nmseex.)

The changes were suggested by Paul Laub (Fox Chase Cancer Center, He has added a feature to nmsee. The command, nmsee help, will produce a summary of the various options. He also improved nmsee.bat.

The (original) readme file follows.

Files for directory NONMEM/NMSEE.DIR

This directory contains nmsee, a post-processor program for NONMEM output. Nmsee extracts important lines from the NONMEM output. It can be instructed to ignore certain lines, to reformat them, and to precede them with identifying prefixes.

The files are:

nmsee.for - The Fortran program
nmsee.doc - Documentation for the program.
nmsee.l - Source file for nmsee.doc, in Unix man format.
E.g., nroff -man nmsee.l | cat -s > nmsee.doc
nmsee - A simple Unix shell script for running nmsee.
nmsee.bat - A simple Dos batch file for running nmsee.

Installation instructions:

1) Read nmsee.doc. It contains suggested program changes for the Microsoft Windows/DOS environments.
2) Compile the program, e.g., f77 nmsee.for
3) Copy the executable to a directory which is in the path of all NONMEM users, and give it the same name that is used in the nmsee shell script or batch file. E.g., cp a.out /usr/local/nmsee.exe
4) Copy the shell script or batch file to the same directory.

It should be possible to run nmsee on any platform.

Summary of the nmsee program:

Input - a NONMEM output report (unit 5)
Input - a file of instructions called nmsee.opt (unit 8)
Output - a summary of the report (unit 6)


NONMEM is run with CONTROL3/DATA3 from the NONMEM distribution medium as input (THEOPHYLLINE SINGLE SUBJECT DATA). OUT3 is the output report.

The command: nmsee mmboth prefix notext nocovar OUT3
The output:

Comments, suggestions, etc., are welcome. Advice on installation in other environments is especially welcome.

Nmsee is not a supported product of the NONMEM Project Group, but has been found to be useful here.
