rostat - ROSTAT statistical routines

Synopsis

rostat in=... out=... [parameter=value] | rostat.exe

Description

rostat contains the current versions of statistical routines being tested by T. Beers, K. Flynn, and K. Gebhardt for robust estimation of simple statistics.

Alternative means to classify coefficients of skewness and kurtosis, called symmetry and tail indeces, can be used as a more reliable and robust means of comparing two different datasets to detect deviations from gaussian (normal) distribution.

Parameters

out=log-file
