Subcommand

Description
This command selects the L_{1}estimator, i.e., the objective function to be
minimized is the sum of the weighted absolute residuals.
Minimizing the mean absolute deviation leads to a maximumlikelihood estimate if the errors follow a double exponential distribution.
The L_{1}estimator should be used, for example, to minimize a cost function for
the optimization of a cleanup operation. Furthermore, it can be used whenever
the objective function of interest is a linear function of the model output
(e.g., in a sensitivity analysis using command
