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

\usage{
 plotParallel(parallel,
              eig    = NA,
              x      = eig,
              model  = "components",
              legend = TRUE,
              ylab   = "Eigenvalues",
              xlab   = "Components",
              main   = "Parallel Analysis",
              ...
              )
 }

\arguments{
  \item{parallel}{ numeric:   vector of the results of a previous parallel analysis }
  \item{eig}{      depreciated parameter: eigenvalues to analyse (not used if
                   x is used, recommended)}
  \item{x}{        numeric: a \code{vector} of eigenvalues, a \code{matrix} of
                   correlations or of covariances or a \code{data.frame} of data}
  \item{model}{    character: \code{"components"} or \code{"factors"} }
  \item{main}{     character: title of the plot }
  \item{xlab}{     character: label of the x axis }
  \item{ylab}{     character: label of the y axis }
  \item{legend}{   logical:   indicator of the presence or not of a legend }
  \item{...}{      variable: additionnal parameters to give to the \code{cor} or
                   \code{cov} functions}
 }
 
\details{
  If \code{eig} is \code{FALSE} the plot shows only the parallel analysis without eigenvalues.
 }

\value{
 Nothing returned.
