It is another problem with Homals on my own data. Have you ever got a
eigenvalue above one? Because in my analysis homals consistently gave me
very small eigenvalues(far below 1), I compared the eigenvalues in Homals
and Psych, there were different, Psych always gave me high eigenvalues. you
can find the code in attachment.
