Announcing xldlas v0.60
I have recently placed version 0.60 of xldlas
in sunsite's incoming directory:
I expect it to be moved to:
shortly. Since strange things seem to be happenning as sunsite, the
best place to get the new version is at the xldlas homepage:
* Popup Balloon Help added
* Multiple variable summaries
* Various Bug fixes
What is it?
It's for doing statistics.
* Based on the xforms library (ie. looks pretty slick)
* Point and click interface to statistical summaries, OLS
regression, plotting, correlation analysis, etc.
* Neural network and Genetic Algorithm data fitting
with some nice visual feedback.
* Very handy automatic generating of .tex format and html
log files, including tables and plots.
* Online help
Where'd the Name come from
xldlas was inspired by a non-X statistics program called ldlas,
which stood for ldlas, damned lies, and statistics. So, I guess
xldlas stands for x ldlas, damned lies, and statisitics.
ATTN: People with Other Stats Software
I've been getting a lot of e-mail about xldlas, and some people
seem to be using it for fairly important things. This worries me,
because I have received very little feedback on xldlas's
statistical "accuracy". So, if you have access to Gauss, Stata,
SPSS, Shazam, etc., I'd really appreciate it if you could run
some data through your commercial software, run the same
data through xldlas, and report any discrepencies. I'm pretty
sure that Summarize and Correlation are ok, but Regress and
ANOVA should be explored. Thanks.
The author (Thor Sigvaldason) is happy to receive feedback
