Re: coding .pin files

A bit more information would make it easier to reply.

I gather you have fitted a MEANS model, i.e.
you only have effects for the interaction [and these
are infact means for the interaction effects].

To calculate the mean of effects 8:ll the pin file should say

SHALLOW_CULT  { 8:11 } /4
