Restore dynare_simul.m for Dynare++

Got lost in 21693416 and 9ab832de
Also adapted it to new 4.6 mex-calling syntax
parent 3879ce08
%
% SYNOPSIS
%
% r = dynare_simul(name, shocks)
% r = dynare_simul(name, prefix, shocks)
% r = dynare_simul(name, shocks, start)
% r = dynare_simul(name, prefix, shocks, start)
%
% name name of MAT-file produced by dynare++
% prefix prefix of variables in the MAT-file
% shocks matrix of shocks
% start zero period value
%
% Note that this file requires the dynare_simul_ DLL to be in the path.
% This DLL is distributed with Dynare, under the mex/matlab or mex/octave
% subdirectory.
%
% SEMANTICS
%
% The command reads a decision rule from the MAT-file having the given
% prefix. Then it starts simulating the decision rule with zero time value
% equal to the given start. It uses the given shocks for the simulation. If
% the start is not given, the state about which the decision rule is
% centralized is taken (called fix point, or stochastic steady state, take
% your pick).
%
% prefix Use the prefix with which you called dynare++, the default
% prefix in dynare++ is 'dyn'.
% shocks Number of rows must be a number of exogenous shocks,
% number of columns gives the number of simulated
% periods. NaNs and Infs in the matrix are substitued by
% draws from the normal distribution using the covariance
% matrix given in the model file.
% start Vector of endogenous variables in the ordering given by
% <prefix>_vars.
%
% Seed for random generator is derived from calling rand(1,1). Therefore,
% seeding can be controlled with rand('state') and rand('state',some_seed).
%
% EXAMPLES
%
% All examples suppose that the prefix is 'dyn' and that your_model.mat
% has been loaded into Matlab.
%
% 1. response to permanent negative shock to the third exo var EPS3 for
% 100 periods
%
% shocks = zeros(4,100); % 4 exogenous variables in the model
% shocks(dyn_i_EPS3,:) = -0.1; % the permanent shock to EPS3
% r = dynare_simul('your_model.mat',shocks);
%
% 2. one stochastic simulation for 100 periods
%
% shocks = zeros(4,100)./0; % put NaNs everywhere
% r = dynare_simul('your_model.mat',shocks);
%
% 3. one stochastic simulation starting at 75% undercapitalized economy
%
% shocks = zeros(4,100)./0; % put NaNs everywhere
% ystart = dyn_ss; % get copy of DR fix point
% ystart(dyn_i_K) = 0.75*dyn_ss(dyn_i_K); % scale down the capital
% r = dynare_simul('your_model.mat',shocks,ystart);
