glmmBUGS: Generalised Linear Mixed Models with BUGS and JAGS

Automates running Generalized Linear Mixed Models, including spatial models, with WinBUGS, OpenBUGS and JAGS. Models are specified with formulas, with the package writings model files, arranging unbalanced data in ragged arrays, and creating starting values. The model is re-parameterized, and functions are provided for converting model outputs to the original parameterization.
