  logfile = "logfile.txt"



Named vector with path(s) to folder(s) containing analysis scripts or NLME project

Path where submission package is created


File with notes on manual postprocessing information.


None. Datasets and programs are copied to the submission package folder structure and a log file with postprocessing information written.


For NLME models, the NONMEM control and output file or mlxtran, Monolix model file and output file will be copied to programs and the modeling dataset to datasets. Per default the modeling dataset given in the control file will be used, however, the user can also provide the path (datafiles). For scripts, it will be attempted to parse the description of the file from the file header if not given by the user. The structure of the created package is 'm5/datasets/analysisname/analysis/legacy' with subfolders 'programs' and 'datasets'. The reviewer's guide needs to be manually opened, adjusted, and stored as PDF. A logfile is giving an overview on files that were copied and potential actions that need to be done.
