{pstd}
{cmd:pval_gs}
Determines possible p-values at the end of a group sequential single-arm trial for
a single binary endpoint, as determined using des_gs. Support is available to
compute point estimates using the naive (naive), MLE-ordering (mle), UMVUE-
ordering (umvue), and conditional (conditional) approaches.
In addition, the performance of the chosen p-value calculation procedures
(including their expected value and variance) for each value of pi in the supplied
vector pi, will also be evaluated.
Calculations are performed conditional on the trial stopping in one of the stages
specified using the input (numlist) k.
