Dear list members,

I've uploaded a new package, called polycor (version 0.5-0), to CRAN. The
package has functions for computing polychoric and polyserial correlations,
either by maximum-likelihood (in which case, standard errors are available)
or by faster approximations. There's also a function to compute
"heterogeneous" correlation matrices composed of product-moment, polychoric,
and polyserial correlations, as appropriate to each pair of variables.

Comments and suggestions would be appreciated.
