Hi Martin,

> thanks for your response. How would one call the C code from R?
The C code compiles into an executable that you can just call from R
like any other command-line program using system(). So, basically, you
dump the degree distribution to a file, call plfit using system() and
that file as an input, store the output in an R string and then parse

But actually, I was stupid, the authors of that paper have a working
R code here:

Apparently not, the R code linked above does not use optim(), it uses
some other calculation that seems to give a MLE of alpha given xmin
using an exact formula.
