Dear Professor Ripley,

thanks again for your mail and useful comments.

Surv(event = 1) means uncensored. If you try event = 0, the fitter diverges towards an exact fit, as I said it should.

Sorry, I misunderstood this.

(BTW, using a .com address suggests you are a COMpany and in the absence of a signature block that will influence how much free help you are offered.)

Thank you very much for this comment. I'd never thought this way. (I'm not a company, btw)

My best regards,
