Tests whether the *g*th row of a correlation matrix is either non-zero or different to the same row of another correlation matrix. Allows for paired data.

This test uses a sum of squares based test statistic as given by the adjusted squared correlation `cor2mean.adj`

as well as an extreme value based test statistic as given by `max`

.

Null distributions are approximated differently when testing equality of two correlation rows and testing if correlation rows are equal to zero.
In the first case, permuted samples are used to construct the confidence interval (see details in `eqCorrMatTest`

).
In the latter, they are found using Monte Carlo samples. For instance, *n* iid observations from a normal distribution *N(0,1)* are generated.
Then, the adjusted square (or absolute maximum) correlations between these montecarlo samples and the original data *D1* are found.
