\description{
 Plot a scree plot adding information about a parallel analysis.
 }

\usage{
 plotParallel(x, 
              eig     = NA, 
              legend = TRUE,
              ylab   = "Eigenvalue",
              xlab   = "Component",
              main   = "Parallel Analysis"
              )
 }

\arguments{
  \item{x}{       Result of a previous parallel analysis }
  \item{eig}{     Eigenvalues }
  \item{main}{    Title of the plot }
  \item{xlab}{    Label of the x axis }
  \item{ylab}{    Label of the y axis }
  \item{legend}{  Logical indicator of the presence or not of a legend }
 }
 
\details{
  If \code{eig} is \code{FALSE} the plot shows only the parallel analysis without eigenvalues.
 }

\value{
 Nothing returned.
