This function implements least angle regression, for use in the selectiveInference package

1 2 |

`x` |
Matrix of predictors (n by p) |

`y` |
Vector of outcomes (length n) |

`maxsteps` |
Maximum number of steps to take |

`minlam` |
Minimum value of lambda to consider |

`intercept` |
Should an intercept be included on the model? Default is TRUE |

`normalize` |
Should the predictors be normalized? Default is TRUE |

`verbose` |
Print out progress along the way? Default is FALSE |

The least angle regression algorithm is described in detail by Efron et al. (2002).
This function should match (in terms of its output) that from the `lars`

package,
but returns additional information (namely, the polyhedral constraints) needed for the
selective inference calculations.

`lambda` |
Values of lambda (knots) visited along the path |

`action` |
Vector of predictors in order of entry |

`sign` |
Signs of coefficients of predictors, upon entry |

`df` |
Degrees of freedom of each active model |

`beta` |
Matrix of regression coefficients for each model along the path, one model per column |

`completepath` |
Was the complete stepwise path computed? |

`bls` |
If completepath is TRUE, the full least squares coefficients |

`Gamma` |
Matrix that captures the polyhedral selection at each step |

`nk` |
Number of polyhedral constraints at each step in path |

`vreg` |
Matrix of linear contrasts that gives coefficients of variables to enter along the path |

`mp` |
Value of M+ (for internal use with the spacing test) |

`x` |
Matrix of predictors used |

`y` |
Vector of outcomes used |

`bx` |
Vector of column means of original x |

`by` |
Mean of original y |

`sx` |
Norm of each column of original x |

`intercept` |
Was an intercept included? |

`normalize` |
Were the predictors normalized? |

`call` |
The call to lar |
