Math::CDF -- Generate probabilities and quantiles from several
statistical probability functions
This module provides cumulative probabilities [P(X <= x)] and
quantiles [given p, returns x such that P(X <= x) = p] from several
statistical probability distributions.
This package provides a perl interface to DCDFLIB, a set of C functions
written by Barry W. Brown, James Lovato and Kathy Russell of the
Department of Biomathematics at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson
Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. DCDFLIB code is included in this module
distribution with permission of its authors.
Please read the README for DCDFLIB provided in the /cdflib subdirectory
of the Math::CDF distribution. In particular please notice in that
document that some DCDFLIB routines might not be properly included in
commercial applications.
How to Install
--------------
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test

Before compiling you may need to edit the file cdflib/ipmpar.c and
uncomment the section of code corresponding to the platform you are
compiling on. By default this file is set up for computers that use
IEEE Arithmetic, which includes IBM PC, Macintosh and most Unix
workstations.
