This manual provides the definitive description of Genstat 5, the latest version of the well-known Genstat statistical software package. The aims of the new design have been to simplify and rationalize the syntax, to make interactive use more convenient, and to extend the statistical programming and graphical facilities. Genstat is a very general computer program for statistical analysis, with all the facilities of a general-purpose statistical package. All the usual analyses are readily available using the standard Genstat commands or directives, however Genstat is not just a collection of pre-programmed commands for selecting from fixed recipes of available analyses. It has a very flexible command language which you can use to write your own programs. The ability to extend Genstat removes the risk inherent in the use of inappropriate or approximate technique when an unusual set of data has to be analyzed. Genstat 5 is currently developed on a DEC VAX computer running the VMS operating system, but implementations are available for many other ranges of computers including mainframes, mini-computers, Unix-based workstations and IBM-compatible PCs, from a wide range of manufacturers. Written by the same group that devised the package, this volume will be the primary reference source for all Genstat users.This manual provides the definitive description of Genstat 5, the latest version of the well-known Genstat statistical software package.
