gbbin - A program to bin data
Compute binned statistics. Data are read from standard input as records
(X,Y1,Y2,...). Equipopulated bins are built with respect to the first field X.
decide which statistics are printed for each bin. With
elements in different bins are split
in different columns.
- set the number of equipopulated bins (default 10)
- min,max set manually the binning window. Ignored with
-x,-y and -c
- set the output with a comma separated list of variables:
xmean, xmin, xmax, xstd, xmedian, ymean, yadev, ystd, yvar, yskew, ykurt,
ymin, ymax, ymedian, num (default xmean, ymean)
- the values in column # are split in different columns; #
can be a comma separated list of columns
- equivalent to -c 1
- equivalent to -c 2
- specify the input fields separators (default "
- verbose mode
- gbbin -n 20 < file
- split the records (line) in 20 bins according to first
field. Print the average value of the bin entries for each column. If
'file' has 3 columns, the output has twenty rows and three columns.
- gbbin -O ymedian < file
- bin the records with respect to the first value and print
the median value of the other columns in each bin
- gbbin -c 3 < file
- the binned values of the third columns are printed on
separate columns. The output has ten columns.
