To exit from CODA , return to the CODA Main Menu and select option 4. The following message will appear:
Quitting CODA.... Do you want to save the BUGS output as an S-Plus object file(y/n) ? 1:Responding y to this question will cause CODA to prompt you for a file name. The BUGS output will be stored as an S-Plus list object with this name. Each element of the list corresponds to a single BUGS chain, and each list element consists of a matrix whose rows correspond to iterations and whose columns correspond to variables. This S-Plus object may be re-used in a subsequent CODA session by selecting option 2 Begin a new CODA session using data saved from a previous CODA session after the welcome message and prompt which appear when CODA is first invoked. Warning: Saving all your BUGS output files as S-Plus objects will quickly consume large amounts of storage space. You are advised only to save your BUGS output as an S-Plus object if you intend to carry out repeated CODA analyses on the same data, and CODA takes a long time to read the data from the usual bugs.out file.
If you respond n to the above question, CODA will delete all copies of the BUGS output within S-Plus (the original BUGS .out and .ind ASCII files are not deleted however). All other temporary objects created during the CODA session are also deleted, and control is returned to the usual S-Plus prompt (>). To quit S-Plus completely, type q() at this prompt.
