Dear all,

I was surprised to find that -moptimize- does not allow initial values
for the intercepts, at least according to my understanding the manual.
After some experimenting and bugfixing, it is now obvious to me that
it does, only the manual seems to be inconsistent in its notation for
"ki" for  equation i.
Here is a link to the ambiguous passage:

Good luck with all your code,

Laszlo
