Announcing xldlas v0.20

=======================

I have recently placed the first public release of xldlas

(version 0.20) in sunsite's incoming directory as:

xldlas-0.20-srcbin.tgz

I expect it to be moved to:

ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/Linux/apps/math/

shortly.

What is it?

===========

It's for doing statistics.

Highlights

==========

* 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.

Feedback

========

The author (Thor Sigvaldason) is happy to receive feedback
