Examples

This script demonstrates the use of rowstats and wcellmask X-Functions to perform descriptive statistics on rows and mask the cell whose value is defined as outlier.

// create a new book and import data file
newbook sheet:=1;
string fname$ = system.path.program$ + "Samples\Graphing\Contour.dat";
impASC;
 
// get number of columns and rows
int nCols = wks.nCols;
int nRows = wks.nRows;
 
// add two columns for mean and sd
wks.addCol(Mean);
wks.addCol(SD);
 
// perform row stats
rowstats -r 0 irng:=col(1)[1]:col($(nCols))[nRows] mean:=col(Mean) sd:=col(SD);
 
// mask outlier
for(int ii=1; ii<=nRows; ii++)
{
	double dLower = col(Mean)[ii]-col(SD)[ii];  // mean-sd
	double dUpper = col(Mean)[ii]+col(SD)[ii];  // mean+sd
	for(int jj=1; jj<=nCols; jj++)
	{
		double dOutlier = col($(jj))[ii];  // get cell value
		if(dOutlier<dLower || dOutlier>dUpper)
		{
			wcellmask irng:=col($(jj))[ii];  // mask the cell
		}
	}
}
