Usage
This function accepts a model as input, and returns a model as output where all the RAM objective functions have been transformed to either ML or FIML objective functions, where the necessary algebras have been auto-generated in order to calculate the expected covariance and means matrices.

omxRAMtoML(model)

Arguments

model a MxModel object.

Examples

# Read libraries and set options.
