Thanks, Maarten,

this got me onto the right track (I hope). I looked up -ml score-,
where I found reference to -ml_score-, which appears to be
undocumented.

The following seems to do the trick:

        if `"`scores'"' != "" {
                ml_score `0'
                exit
        }

where "scores" is the name of the option in my -predict- command.

Thanks again,
Eva
