`as.mcmc.brmsfit.Rd`

The `as.mcmc`

method is deprecated. We recommend using the more
modern and consistent `as_draws_*`

extractor
functions of the posterior package instead.

```
# S3 method for brmsfit
as.mcmc(
x,
pars = NA,
fixed = FALSE,
combine_chains = FALSE,
inc_warmup = FALSE,
...
)
```

- x
An

`R`

object typically of class`brmsfit`

- pars
Names of parameters for which posterior samples should be returned, as given by a character vector or regular expressions. By default, all posterior samples of all parameters are extracted.

- fixed
Indicates whether parameter names should be matched exactly (

`TRUE`

) or treated as regular expressions (`FALSE`

). Default is`FALSE`

.- combine_chains
Indicates whether chains should be combined.

- inc_warmup
Indicates if the warmup samples should be included. Default is

`FALSE`

. Warmup samples are used to tune the parameters of the sampling algorithm and should not be analyzed.- ...

If `combine_chains = TRUE`

an `mcmc`

object is returned.
If `combine_chains = FALSE`

an `mcmc.list`

object is returned.
