The goal of cats is to facilitate the simulation of cohort platform trials with either one short-term and one long-term binary endpoint (in the legacy branch) or two primary binary endpoints (master branch).


You can install the released version of Cats from CRAN using:


And the development version from GitHub with:

# install.packages("devtools")


Please see the reference manual for more information on the usage of this package. The usage is nearly identical to that of the CohortPlat package by the same authors. A detailed vignette for that package’s usage can be found here.
