Description

Parses a group of Mplus model output files (.out extension) for model fit statistics. At this time, the details extracted are fixed and include: Filename, InputInstructions, Title, Estimator, LL, BIC, aBIC, AIC, AICC, Parameters, Observations, CFI, TLI, RMSEA_Estimate, RMSEA_90CI_LB, RMSEA_90CI_UB, RMSEA_pLT05, ChiSqM_Value, ChiSqM_DF, ChiSq_PValue, BLRT_KM1LL, BLRT_PValue, BLRT_Numdraws). The infrastructure is in place to allow for user-specified selection of summary statistics in future versions.

Usage

1
extractModelSummaries(target = getwd(), recursive = FALSE, filefilter)

Arguments

target

the directory containing Mplus output files (.out) to parse OR the single output file to be parsed. Defaults to the current working directory. Example: "C:/Users/Michael/Mplus Runs"

recursive

optional. If TRUE, parse all models nested in subdirectories within directory. Defaults to FALSE.

filefilter

a Perl regular expression (PCRE-compatible) specifying particular output files to be parsed within directory. See regex or http://www.pcre.org/pcre.txt for details about regular expression syntax.

Value

Returns a data.frame containing model fit statistics for all output files within directory. The data.frame contains some of the following variables (depends on model type):

Title

Title for the model, specified by the TITLE: command
