Hi there,

I have a question on fitting data by coxme. In particular I want to fit a 
random intercept and random slope cox model. Using the rats dataset as an 
example, I generated another covariate x2 and want to specify a random slope 
for x2. Here is my code:

x2=matrix(rep(runif(50), 3), 50, 3)

rats2=cbind(rats, x2)

But when I used the coxme function as follows, it gave an error message. 
What is the right way to do it? Thanks a lot!

  coxme(Surv(time, status) ~ rx+x2, data=rats2, random=~ (1+x2)|litter )
