RSiteSearch("simulate specified covariance") will bring you to mvrnorm() in
MASS. Please try to use R's built-in search capabilities first before
posting. I realize that keywords can be hard to guess, but you may find that
when the hits are **not** what you want, you need to refine your question
more, as described in the posting guide (have you read it?)

Subject: [R] factor analysis backwards

How can I do a factor analysis backwards to get an arbitrary covarianz 
matrix out of an arbitrary number of generated random variables that 
have a correlation near zero. Or the same question shorter: How to 
generate random variables that have a spezial correlation pattern.
I would like to be able to do this to generate arbitrary data structures 
for simulation purpose
