Statistical Software

From the mid-80s to the early 90s I wrote a series of DOS-based shareware statistics programs, which I called STATOOLS(tm). They were intended to help me in my work by providing capabilities missing from commercial packages. If other analysts could use them, too, so much the better. Some STATOOLS(tm) have been made obsolete by updated commercial packages, but others have had surprisingly long lifetimes and show no sign of waning as long as analysts are still willing to use DOS programs. Many of the programs are available by anonymous FTP from the SimTel collection.

STATOOLS(tm) are no longer shareware. They are essentially freeware. Individual users may ignore any shareware notices that appear in the software. These programs may not be added to any commercial product, they may not be sold, and no fee of any kind may be charged for them, including distribution fees. However, these prohibitions are not meant to prohibit sites like SimTel from including STATOOLS(tm) in their collections. Citations are always appreciated!

NOTE: I have been told that the McAfee SiteAdvisor gives a red flag to my site because links to the Simtel site! Yes, there were the download pages for my software! Next to a big red X we read, "When we tested this site we found links to, which we found to be a distributor of downloads some people consider adware, spyware or other potentially unwanted programs." Further down the page, in teeny-weeny type, it reads, "In our tests, we found downloads on this site were free of adware, spyware, and other potentially unwanted programs." Too little, too late. With the big red X the damage is done. Therefore, I've removed the live links and put the URLs in square brackets. If you'd like the software, copy and paste the URLs into your browser.
