#' Function to compute positive and negative parts of Moran's index of spatial
#' autocorrelation
#' 
#' This function computes positive and negative parts of Moran's I statistic and
#' provide a testing procedure using random permutations. The functions compute
#' the Moran's eigenvector maps (MEM) and eigenvalues for the \code{listw}
#' object. If \code{alter = "greater"}, the statistic 'I+' is computed as the
#' sum of the products between positive eigenvalues and squared correlations
#' between \code{x} and associated MEMs. If \code{alter = "less"}, the statistic
#' 'I-' is computed as the sum of the products between negative eigenvalues and
#' squared correlations between \code{x} and associated MEMs. If \code{alter =
#' "two-sided"}, both statistics are computed.
#' 
#' @param x a \code{vector} with numeric data
#' @param listw an object of class \code{listw} created for example by
#'   \code{\link[spdep]{nb2listw}}
#' @param nrepet an integer indicating the number of permutations used in the 
#'   randomization procedure
#' @param alter a character string specifying the alternative hypothesis, must
#'   be one of "greater" (default), "less" or "two-sided"
#' @param \dots other arguments (e.g., \code{p.adjust.method}) to be passed to
#'   the code{\link[ade4]{as.krandtest}} function.
#' @return An object of class \code{randtest} (for unilateral test) or
#'   \code{krandtest} (for bilateral test)
