FORMAT OF THE MAIN DATA FILE (input.dat)
The main data file should contain n records of the following form:
del(i), t0(i), t(i), kv(i), (x2(i,l), l=1, nb2)
del(i) = event (1) or censoring (0)
t0(i) = time at entry to risk set
t(i) = time at end of follow-up
kv(i) = configuration of error-prone covariate for subject i (an integer between 1 and k)
(x2(i,l), l=1, nb2) = the values of the error-free covariate
