{synopt:{opt k(numlist)}} Calculations are performed conditional on the trial stopping in one of the stages listed in numlist k. Thus, k should be a numlist of integers, with elements between one and the maximum number of possible stages. If left unspecified, it will internally default to all possible stages.{p_end}
{synopt:{opt pi(numlist)}} Numlist of response probabilities to evaluate the expected performance of the point estimation procedures at. This will internally default to 0,0.01,...,1.{p_end}
