This function generates and runs Mplus syntax which is discussed in Nagy et. al. (2009) and extracts the estimated model parameters - the angular locations of the six RIASEC dimensions and angular locations for the additional (projected) construct, based on their correlations, in the asumed circumplex array within the theory of vocational choice by John Holland (1997).

`N` |
number of observations for correlations as numeric |

`Cor` |
must be an R matrix object with RIASEC and additional construct correlations. The order of the entrys of the correlation matrix must start with the additional construct dimensions - thus the last six collums (rows) in the correlation matrix are the six RIASEC dimensions. |

`M` |
number of additional construct dimensions to project into the RIASEC circumplex - e.g. |

`showOutput` |
default set to |

`Mplus_command` |
default set to |

`replaceOutfile` |
default set to "always" - see description of the function |

`...` |
additional parameters passed through |

This function uses the function `extractModelParameters()`

in package `MplusAutomation`

.

By deault the labels of the dimensions are taken from the column / row names of the matrix objekt given in `Cor`

. If there are no named columns / rows, dimension lables are created.

returns a list object containing the empirical RIASEC and additional construct angular locations extracted from the Mplus result file after running the Mplus syntax.
