StatLib---UTexas Archive
This collection consists of FORTRAN source code and documentation for a number
of computer routines, generally motivated by biostatistics applications.
Each files in this collection is a uuencoded, compressed, TAR archive --
except for stplan.doc.uuen which is just a uuencoded, compressed file. To
obtain (say) the ksbin collection, send the following message
send ksbin.uuen from utexas
StatLib will respond by sending you several mail messages. The first message
will be instructions on how to put the mail messages back together to recover
the original file (that is ksbin.uuen). Suppose you save this in a file
called fred. You then need to uudecode this file, viz;
uudecode fred
which will create a file called ksbin.tar.Z, a compressed tar file. To un-tar
the archive do,
zcat ksbin.tar.Z | tar -xvf -
Obviously, these programs stretch the limits of mail-based distribution. IF
POSSIBLE, use Gopher, FTP, or WWW instead.

[4/April/1990] (5034 bytes)

funcions, inverses, and values of parameters for many common
statistical distributions. It can also produce tables of any one
calculated iten as a function of a specified list of values of
another item. It is written in fortran. THIS IS A LARGE SET OF
SOFTWARE. PLEASE BE SURE YOU WANT IT. See the stattab.readme
file first.(submitted by B. Brown, bwb@mdaali.cancer.utexas.edu)

groups, possibly of different sizes. Number of events is
binomially distributed. (24/May/91) [115766 bytes]
busspa.uuen --> Exact significance and power calculations for two
group tests of equality of binomial parameter. The two groups may
have unequal sizes. (24/May/91) [155024 bytes]
extsig.uuen --> Exact significance levels and the usual chi-square
statistic for a 2 X 2 table. (Stripped down easy to use version
of busspa.) (24/May/91) [117824]
ksb1ci.uuen --> Confidence intervals for single group binomial one-
or multi-stage trial. (24/May/91) [74842 bytes]
accflf.tar.Z --> Program to fit very general accelerated failure
model with log-F error to possibly censored data. (NOTE: A
compressed tar file). [2/Oct/95] (313k)
The tar files contain the following. README which gives a brief overview of
the package, legalities (Utexas retains control of commercial distribution), a
packing list including the output of sum and wc on each source file, a
documentation file .doc, and the source files. The source specific to
the application is in files i.f. I broke the Fortran source into small
chunks (less than 6000 lines) suitable for editing with MicoEmacs on an MSDOS
machine. No routine spans two .f files. The .f files could be catted
together since the file is not a syntactic unit in Fortran (it is in C). Some
machine specific routines are usually required; these are on files
machspec. where machine is one of MAC, MSDOS, UNIX or VAX.
