coxphf: Cox Regression with Firth's Penalized Likelihood

Implements Firth's penalized maximum likelihood bias reduction method for Cox regression which has been shown to provide a solution in case of monotone likelihood (nonconvergence of likelihood function). The program fits profile penalized likelihood confidence intervals which were proved to outperform Wald confidence intervals.
