Table 1: Package characteristics. Blue cross is for option available for a given type of model in the package on CRAN, orange cross is for option included in the package but not on CRAN yet. Empty cells mean that an option is not available for a given type of model (either not coded yet or simply not applicable). RE = Recurrent Event; TE = Terminal Event; LO = Longitudinal Outcome; STE = Surrogate threshold effect; ODE = Ordinary Differential Equation.

Note

If you want to take in charge frailtypack as a project, but work on a macOSX with a version of R >= 3.6, a problem must happen between openmp and clang. To avoid this, you should edit your personal Makevars (~/R/Makevars), admitting you use gcc-8.1.0, by :

VER=-8

CC=gcc$(VER)

CXX=g++$(VER)

CXX11=g++$(VER)

CXX14=g++$(VER)
