# NAME¶

gbtest - Compute statistical tests on data# SYNOPSIS¶

**gbtest**[

*options*]

*<tests list>*

# DESCRIPTION¶

Compute statistical tests on data. Each test is specified by a unique name and optional parameters follows, separated by commas. Depending on the test, one, two or three columns of data are expected. '1 sample' tests expect a single columns. Test on 'pairs' expect two columns of equal length. Test on '2 samples' expect two columns of data, possibly of different length. Test on 2+ and 3+ samples expect a varying number of columns. If more columns are provided, the test is repeated for any column in the case of 1 sample test, and any couple of columns in the case of 2 sample tests. In the last case, the output is expressed in matrix format, with estimated statistics on the lower triangle and p-scores (if requested) on the upper. The removal of 'nan' entries is automatic, and is performed consistently with the nature of the test.Tests typically assume 1, 2 or 3+ samples. Available tests are:

- D+,D-,D,V 1 samp
- Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests on cumulated data

- LEV-MED
- 2+ samp Levene equality of variances using medians
- KW
- 3+ samp Kruscal-Wallis test on 3+ samples
- CHI2-N
- 3+ samp Multi-columns contingency table analysis

# OPTIONS¶

**-p**- compute associated significance
**-s**- input data are already sorted in ascending order
**-F**- specify the input fields separators (default " \t")
**-o**- set the output format (default '%12.6e')
**-v**- verbosity: 0 none, 1 headings, 2+ description (default 0)
**-h**- this help

# EXAMPLES¶

- gbtest FP < file
- compute the Fligner-Policello test on the columns of 'file', considering all possible pairings.
- gbtest KW -p < file
- compute the Kruscal-Wallis test and its p-score on the first three columns of data in 'file'
