Utility methods for plsm objects.
Description
By means of the utility methods pls model descrpitions inheriting from
class plsm
can easily be altered or investigated.

data 
A 
LV 
A 
mode 
A

MVs

Details
exogenous
returns the exogenous latent variables contained in a path
model.
endogenous
returns the endogenous latent variables contained in a path
model.
reflective
returns the reflectively measured latent variables
contained in a path model.
formative
returns the formatively measured latent variables
contained in a path model.
indicators
returns the index or observed variables related to
the given latent variable.
predecessors
returns a list with the names of predecessors for
each latent variable.
successors
returns a list with the names of successors for
each latent variable.
connected
returns TRUE
if the inner model is a connected
graph.
acyclic
returns TRUE
if the inner model is recursive,
thus represented by an acyclic graph.
Value
All utility methods return an object of class plsm
.

Examples
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41  data(mobi)
data(ECSIsm)
data(ECSImm)
ECSI < plsm(data=mobi, strucmod=ECSIsm, measuremod=ECSImm)
### Some sense free examples
# Print the block of MVs associated with "Expectation".
ECSI[["blocks"]]["Expectation"]
# Change measurement model for "Expectation" from reflective to
# formative and print its block MVs
invertLVs(model=ECSI, LVs=c("Expectation"))[["blocks"]]["Expectation"]
# Print the adjacency matrix for the inner model.
ECSI[["D"]]
# Add an additional path from "Quality" to "Loyalty" and
# print the resulting adjacency matrix.
addPath(model=ECSI, from="Quality", to="Loyalty")[["D"]]
# Remove the path previously added.
removePath(model=ECSI, from="Image", to=c("Satisfaction", "Loyalty"))[["D"]]
# Print all MVs used in the model
ECSI$manifest
# Remove some MVs and print the MVs used in the model
removeMVs(model=ECSI, MVs=c("IMAG3", "CUEX1", "PERQ7"))$manifest
