```Hi Micheal, Maybe there is a simple way but i wanted to get the lowest aicc
ana i could not find a way to do so, that's why i created the  table to
store all possible outcomes and then i can easily get the minimum value and
the values of (i,j and k) used for that minimum value. The first column in
the table is AICc[,1] to store i and second column for j and so on. Maybe i
am mistaken and this won't give me what i want, the code been running for 5
hours now. So i am waiting
