using runmlwin in batch mode on Unix

Post by becciaa1992 » Tue Dec 03, 2019 2:07 am

Hi all,

I am having such a hard time configuring runmlwin to run in batch mode on Unix. I am able to successfully run runmlwin on my personal computer, however, when I try to run it on Unix, I keep getting an error that suggests that I am not specifying the global statements correctly (I am getting the invalid name error). However, I definitely have the path name correctly ... does anyone have experience with this and know if this is done differently on Unix? Thanks!

Could you please provide further information on how you have set up the software, as well as provide the exact output and error message that you are receiving?

Yes of course!

To install runmlwin, I followed the instructions on this page: https://www.bristol.ac.uk/cmm/media/run ... ocation.do

thus using the following code:

Code: Select all

global sysdir_plus = c(sysdir_plus)
sysdir set PLUS "~/STATA"
ssc install runmlwin
sysdir set PLUS "$sysdir_plus"
adopath + "~/STATA"
This seems to have worked, as I no longer get an error signifying that the runmlwin command is not recognized, and it also placed a series of folders (titled "m", "r", "s", and "u") in the folder that I specified ("STATA"). I believe that running this code is also what placed the folder titled "ado" within my home directory on the server that I'm working on.

I have put the file called "mlnscript" in the ado > personal folder (which also contains files entitled libmln.so, mlnscipt.1, runmlwin.ado, and LICENSE), thus using the following commands to specify the global macro:

Code: Select all

global MLwiNScript_path "~/ado/personal/mlnscript"
global MLwiN_path "~/ado/personal/mlnscript"
I then run the following code (via batch mode):

Code: Select all

* Load the data
use "~/STATA/distress.dta", clear   
sort group idcode
gen cons = 1
gen denominator = 1

* Fit model using PQL2
runmlwin distress_cats cons , ///
  level2(group: cons) ///
  level1(idcode:) ///
  discrete(distribution(binomial) link(logit) denominator(denominator) pql2) ///
  rigls maxiterations(100) ///
  nopause
And get the following error:

Code: Select all

... invalid name
Any advice would be great, thank you so much in advance!! :)

Could you confirm that you are running the most recent version of runmlwin? This should correspond to the version at https://bitbucket.org/cmm_stata/runmlwi ... nmlwin.ado. The plugin for determining the MLwiN version does not exist on Linux/Mac, so it should be getting to the check on line 116. You can determine exactly where the error is occurring by running the command:

Code: Select all

set trace on
prior to your runmlwin call. This should then display the code that is being run when the error occurred. If the cause isn't obvious could you post this log and I will see if I can tell what is going on?

Hi Chris,

Thank you so much for your help, this is so appreciated. Here is the log output from using the "set trace on" command:

Re: using runmlwin in batch mode on Unix

Post by ChrisCharlton » Tue Dec 03, 2019 2:14 pm

Thanks for this. It appears that there is an extra space in the version number, which is preventing it from being matched. Could you try replacing:

Code: Select all

local minorver : display %02.0f `r(ver2)'
with:

Code: Select all

local minorver : `r(ver2)'
and seeing if it is able to get any further?

If this works I will look into putting a more general fix into newer versions of runmlwin.

Hi Chris,

Just to clarify, do you mean copying and pasting that log output from having trace on into the do-file (with the replacement you noted) and re-running? ... apologies if this is a silly question!!

When I do that, I seem to just get the same log file back (i.e., I'm not seeing any model output). But perhaps I'm doing something wrong.

Sorry for not being clearer. I meant open the file runmlwin.ado, search for local minorver : display %02.0f `r(ver2)' and replace it with local minorver : `r(ver2)' (i.e. remove the display %02.0 prefix).
