Generate correlated data of a given length.

1 |

`len` |
Length of vectors. |

`x` |
Independent data. If x is specified, the population parameter is automatically set to TRUE. |

`r` |
Desired correlation between data vectors. |

`population` |
TRUE for vectors drawn from two populations with correlation r, otherwise r is the sample correlation. |

`epsilon` |
Desired tolerance. |

Either x or len must be specified. If epsilon = 0, it has no effect, otherwise the sampling process is repeated until the sample correlation is within epsilon of r. This option allows the production of exactly-correlated data, within the limits of epsilon. Setting epsilon > 0 invalidates the population setting; data will be correlated within that range, rather than sampled from that population.If epsilon = 0, it has no effect, otherwise the sampling process is repeated until the sample correlation is within epsilon of r.

`x ` |
First data vector, either generated by corgen or given by the user. |

`y ` |
Second data vector. |
