You may test your build of BESTPRED using the default parameter file and example lactation data provided in the file DCRexample.txt. A file of results calculated by AIPL is provided in the file DCRexample.results.dcr; they should be compared to the results stored in results_v2.dcr, which will be created when you run the bestpred program. Small differences between platforms are to be expected, but large differences may indicate a problem. The input and output files are described in more detail in Section 4.8.
