Sorry for the multiple quotes above. This is the earliest message
in this thread which I haven't deleted!

The other day I installed what appears to be an esp. good stats
package. I only did it for its graphics, but there is much else
to it. The package is called `R'. I prefer not to do this but
their docs give a pretty good summary of what its capable of :


R is an integrated suite of software facilities for data
manipulation, calculation and graphical display. Among
other things it has
  * an effective data handling and storage facility,
  * a suite of operators for calculations on arrays,
    in particular matrices,
  * a large, coherent, integrated collection of
    intermediate tools for data analysis, =20
  * graphical facilities for data analysis and display
    either directly at the computer or on hardcopy, and
  * a well developed, simple and effective programming
    language which includes conditionals, loops,
    user defined recursive functions and input and output


The suite compiles without issue and is available for free
download from:

I hope this is useful.

Many regards,

 Richard Mahoney
