BESTPRED may be used as a standalone program or called as a subroutine from another program. When run as a standalone program BESTPRED requires that input data be provided in AIPL's Format 4 (see Table 4.1). The bestpred_fmt4 and bestpred subroutines provide more flexibility in that records may be stored in whatever format is desired as long as the input arrays and vectors are filled correctly. Interfacing Fortran 90 subroutines with other languages (e.g. C, SQL stored procedures) is beyond the scope of the manual.
