Hi all --

     I'm running a Factor Analysis on my dataset, and I've located the "factanal()" and "princomp()" methods. I don't want to do a PCA, so it looks like I should use factanal(), but factanal() requires specifying the number of factors you expect from the analysis.

    Are there any packages out there explicitly for Exploratory Factor Analysis that do not require specifying the number of expected factors?
