Test for conditional independence in a dataframe.

x 
A dataframe. 
set 
A specification of the test to be made. The tests are of the form
u and v are independent condionally on S where u and v are variables and
S is a set of variables. See 'details' for details about specification of

Additional arguments. 
set
can be 1) a vector or 2) a righthand sided formula in which
variables are separated by '+'. In either case, it is tested if the first
two variables in the set
are conditionally independent given the
remaining variables in set
. (Notice an abuse of the '+' operator in
the righthand sided formula: The order of the variables does matter.)
If set
is NULL
then it is tested whether the first two
variables are conditionally independent given the remaining variables.
If set
consists only of factors then x[,set]
is converted to a
contingency table and the test is made in this table using
ciTest_table()
.
If set
consists only of numeric values and integers then
x[,set]
is converted to a list with components cov
and
n.obs
by calling cov.wt(x[,set], method='ML')
. This list is
then passed on to ciTest_mvn()
which makes the test.
An object of class 'citest' (which is a list).
