Try the documentation

Available from the front page.

Rather than specifically treating binary variables it describes ordinal variables instead. There are examples in the sections describing each of the two ways in which you can specify models.

When you have set up a test file post again with some more detail about what model you are trying to fit including what the science is not just what commands you think you need. Also include any error messages.
