This function is called from the functions
`docabasic, socabasic, sonscabasic`

and `donscabasic`

.
It allows the analyst to compute the orthogonal polynomials of the ordered categorical variable.
The number of the polynomials is equal to the variable category less one.
The function computes the polynomial transformation of the ordered categorical variable.

`mj` |
The ordered scores of an ordered variable. By default |

`pj` |
The marginals, relative frequencies of the ordered variable. |

Describe the value returned

`B` |
the matrix of the orthogonal polynomials without the trivial polynomial. |

Note that the sum of the marginals of the ordered variables should be one.
