Dear GSL staff,
I was looking at the documentation related to release 1.14 of the library.
In particular the "Example statical programs" in the Statistics part.
The first Program has a little error in the presentation of the results the
library should return.
The on-line (HTML) documentation says:
"The program should produce the following output,
The dataset is 17.2, 18.1, 16.5, 18.3, 12.6
The sample mean is 16.54
* The estimated variance is 4.2984*
The largest value is 18.3
The smallest value is 12.6
"
While the effective output returned is:
"
The dataset is 17.2, 18.1, 16.5, 18.3, 12.6
The sample mean is 16.54
*The estimated variance is 5.373*
The largest value is 18.3
The smallest value is 12.6
"
Which is in fact the correct result!
So the library works, but the documentation appears to have a little bug.
Thank you for the attention.
Regards
Gabriele Colosimo
