summary statistics that you can choose as results of this
program by checking the appropriate field using [ CHK]

Many of these summary statistics are used to calculate statistics of two
variables (x,y) that may be related by a function y = f(x). Therefore, this
program can be thought off as a companion to program
As an example, for the x-y data currently in DAT, obtain all the summary
statistics.
To access the summary stats... option, use: ‚Ù˜˜˜@@@OK@@@
Select the column numbers corresponding to the x- and y-data, i.e., X-Col:
