-gllamm- has its own website: http://www.gllamm.org/

In my answer I proposed using -listcoef, std- and using the parameters
in the bStdXY column. These are most comparable with the other
parameters in your path model. See: (Long and Freese 2006) for more on
standardized coefficients from logistic regression.

Hope this helps,
