Techniques:
• Arrays, lists, and stack elements. MEDIAN extracts a column of
data from 2:DAT in vector form. To convert the vector to a list,
MEDIAN puts the vector elements on the stack and then combines
them into a list. From this list the median is calculated using SORT
and LMED.
The median for the mth column is calculated first, and the median
for the first column is calculated last, so as each median is calcu-
lated, it is moved to the stack level above the previously calculated
medians.
