R Functions for Estimation of the LCDM in Mplus

The R functions are used to build, run, and parse Mplus syntax for estimation of the LCDM. The functions to build the R syntax were created by Andre Rupp and Oliver Wilhelm with additions for parsing and computing attribute reliability contributed by Jonathan Templin

The example will run if all files are put into the same folder.
