Asterisks in batch mode

Help

  • In JAGS 3.0 submitting a job in batch mode automatically disallows the
    printing of the (very informative) asterisks.

    Would it be possible to add an option somewhere (on the jags call, such as
    jags -a ) to have again the possibility to see asterisks in JAGS running on
    batch mode?

    Thank you,

    OK. The next release will print a progress bar, even in batch mode, if you
    give the by(n) option to update with n != 0.

    In the mean time, on unix, you can use command redirection:

    jags < myscript.txt
    

    You get a few unwanted prompt marks, but the progress bar is printed.
