Announcing xldlas v0.20
I have recently placed the first public release of xldlas
(version 0.20) in sunsite's incoming directory as:
I expect it to be moved to:
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.
* Experimental curve fitting routine that uses genetic algorithms
with some nice visual feedback.
* Very handy automatic generating of .tex format log files,
including tables and plots.
* Online help
Worried about the Version Number?
Well, I've never seen it crash, but it is a beta release.
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.
