Computation of adjusted *p*-values for multistage parallel
gatekeeping procedures.

1 | ```
pargateadjp(gateproc, independence, alpha, printDecisionRules)
``` |

`gateproc` |
List of gatekeeping procedure parameters
in each family of null hypotheses, including the family label, vector of
raw |

`independence` |
Boolean indicator (TRUE, Independence condition is imposed (i.e., inferences in earlier families are independent of inferences in later families); FALSE, Independence condition is not imposed). |

`alpha` |
Global family-wise error rate (default is 0.05). Note that
this argument is not needed if the function is called to compute
adjusted |

`printDecisionRules` |
Boolean indicator for printing the decision rules for the gatekeeping procedure (default is FALSE). |

This function computes adjusted *p*-values and generates decision rules for multistage parallel
gatekeeping procedures in hypothesis testing problems with multiple families
of null hypotheses (null hypotheses are assumed to be equally weighted within
each family) based on the methodology presented in Dmitrienko, Tamhane
and Wiens (2008) and Dmitrienko, Kordzakhia and Tamhane (2011). For more
information on parallel gatekeeping procedures (computation of adjusted *p*-values,
independence condition, etc), see Dmitrienko and Tamhane (2009, Section 5.4).

A data frame `result`

with columns for the family labels, procedures, procedure
parameters (truncation parameters), raw *p*-values, and adjusted *p*-values.
