Does the current version of OpenMx allow for automatic conversion of scripts from other programs (e.g. LISREL)? For some reason I thought you were toying with this idea.

Original Mx first, but yes.

I think the general idea is to first set up a conversion tool for the old Mx scripting language (or at least, a wide swath of it), and then to move on to other tools if they community thinks they'll be helpful.

If anybody is interested in writing automatic conversion tools, however, we welcome you to take a crack at it and can offer the help of the community here through the forums. I imagine we'd also welcome suggestions for what script conversions will be most helpful to community members, and which of those might be best to do sooner.
