Bayz Manual

Errors reported when reading and processing the job script

There is no job script to run

This means you started bayz, but did not supply a name of a job or model script to run. As a minimum you should start bayz as:

  bayz myscript

to run the script myscript.bayz.

Wrong syntax: line is not a valid model line

A correct line from the model section should have one of three basic lay-outs with an arrow (to create a latent vector), equal (to set a linear predictor for response or hierarchical model), or tilde (to set a distribution for parameter or residuals). Bayz cannot recognise on the indicated line one of these 3 basic lay-outs.

Wrong syntax: line is ambiguous

A correct line from the model section should have one of three basic lay-outs with an arrow (to create a latent vector), equal (to set a linear predictor for response or hierarchical model), or tilde (to set a distribution for parameter or residuals). This lines has two or more of these 3 basic lay-outs and therefore is ambiguous. This error also can occur when you have an option which is not written as a single string, leading bayz to recognise the equal-sign in an option as a basic lay-out for a linear predictor line.
