# Processing input parameters

### Description

A function to process the input parameters. The function calls functions to generate random data for PLS-Mode-B models.

### Usage

1 | ```
ToProcess(N, n, parMode, pI, eq)
``` |

### Arguments

`N` |
The number of data sets. |

`n` |
The sample size of each data set. |

`parMode` |
The mode of each block of variables (default |

`pI` |
The number of indicators per construct: {2,4,6,8}. |

`eq` |
A boolean variable. |

### Value

Two files:

`text file` |
A |

`csv file` |
A |
