`predcov`

simulates from the posterior predictive distribution
of the model-implied covariance matrix.

1 | ```
predcov(x, ahead = 1, each = 1)
``` |

`x` |
Object of class |

`ahead` |
Vector of timepoints, indicating how many steps to predict ahead. |

`each` |
Single integer (or coercible to such) indicating how often should be drawn from the posterior predictive distribution for each draw that has been stored during MCMC sampling. |

4-dimensional array containing draws from the predictive covariance distribution.

Currently crudely implemented as a triple loop in pure R, may be slow.

Other predictors: `predcond`

,
`predcor`

, `predh`

,
`predloglikWB`

, `predloglik`

,
`predprecWB`
