Scans multi-platform data for all variable length windows have projected chi-square statistc higher than a fixed user-set threshold.

1 | ```
mpscan(y, pos, anchors, win)
``` |

`y` |
A vector of intensity levels for each platform. y[[k]] should be the intensity levels corresponding to pos[[k]] for platform k. |

`pos` |
A vector of sorted integer arrays, one array for each platform. pos[[k]] should give the positions, in increasing order, of the probes of the k-th platform. |

`anchor` |
The anchor set, returned by a call to merge.pos(...) |

`win` |
Largest allowed window size. |

`MIN.SNPs` |
Minimum number of SNPs allowed in a region. |

`WCHISQ.CUTOFF` |
Threshold level for the weighted chi-square statistic. |

`yhat` |
A vector of fitted y values, yhat[[k]] contains the fitted values to y[[k]]. |

`chpts` |
A list of change-points, there are shared across platforms. |

`platform.chisq` |
The contribution of each platform to the overall chi-square value for each interval. |

`Z` |
The Z matrix. |
