Bayesian Constrained Generalised Linear Models

Fits generalised partial linear regression models using a Bayesian approach, where shape and smoothness constraints are imposed on nonparametrically modelled predictors through shape-restricted splines, and no constraints are imposed on optional parametrically modelled covariates. See Meyer et al. (2011) for more details. IMPORTANT: before installing 'bcgam', you need to install 'Rtools' (Windows) or 'Xcode' (Mac OS X). These are required for the correct installation of 'nimble' (<>).
