dbcolsregression — compute linear regression between two columns

Synopsis

    dbcolsregression  [-a] column1 column2

Description

Compute linear regression over "column1" and "column2". Outputs slope, intercept, and correlation coefficient.

Options

-a or --include-non-numeric

Compute stats over all records (treat non-numeric records as zero rather than just ignoring them).

-f FORMAT or --format FORMAT

Specify a printf(3)-style format for output statistics. Defaults to "%.5g".

This module also supports the standard fsdb options:

-d

Enable debugging output.

-i or --input InputSource

Read from InputSource, typically a file name, or "-" for standard input, or (if in Perl) a IO::Handle, Fsdb::IO or Fsdb::BoundedQueue objects.

-o or --output OutputDestination

Write to OutputDestination, typically a file name, or "-" for standard output, or (if in Perl) a IO::Handle, Fsdb::IO or Fsdb::BoundedQueue objects.

--autorun or --noautorun

By default, programs process automatically, but Fsdb::Filter objects in Perl do not run until you invoke the run() method. The "--(no)autorun" option controls that behavior within Perl.
