How to put STAT PACK on your Decsystem 10 or 20
A) If you have a KI or KL processor, virtual memory, and use MPB, you
may use the SAVed version on the distribution tape(STP.SAV, STPK4.CHN,
Note 1: FOR531.SHR must be put on SYS:.
Note 2: STAT PACK may be put on any area you chose, subject to the
If STP.SAV(or .EXE) is accessed from one of the ERSATZ
devices: OLD:[1,3], SYS:[1,4], STD:[1,4], NEW:[1,5],
or one of the specific areas: [1,4] or [1,5],
then the CHAIN file STPK4.CHN will be searched for in
OVL: and failing that in NEW: & SYS:.
If STP.SAV(or .EXE) is kept in an area other than those
above, or is found via a LIB: search, then STPK4.CHN
will only be searched for in that same area.
B) STP is designed for a KL-10, MPB system, however, if you have a
Decsystem-10 or DEcsystem-20 and are using GALAXY, see Appendix 2
for instructions on using an experimental version of a GALAXY-
compatable queueing routine.
C) If you do not wish to use the experimental queueing routine and have a
Decsystem-20, the modifications below, supplied by "The Association
of American Railroads" may be tried. Western Michigan University
can assume no responibility for thier completeness or correctness.
(1) Put The files with a .D20 extension on disk and follow the
instructions in C) below for loading: F10/LINK/KL-20.
(2) AAR notes that after STP is linked, the .HGH and .LOW files
generated must be converted to the Decsystem-20 .EXE format by
the use of the CNVRT program. The program EXPUNG is used to clean
up temporary files generated by STP. In addition it appears that
PRINT and ASSIG commands to STP give output to the same file.
D) If your configuration does not fit the conditions of A) above,
you must compile and load STAT PACK. Use the table below to decide
which load procedure to use and what control files to use. Put on
disk the control, library, and load files and STPV4.COM, CHAINB.F4,
S.REL and all files with a .STP extension(20).
If you have: Use:
COMPILER LOADER CPU VM CONTROL FILE LIBRARY LOAD COMMAND FILE
F40 LOADER KA NO LOD40A.CTL FORLKA.REL LOADKA.CMD
F40 LOADER KI/KL NO LOD40I.CTL FORLKI.REL LOADKI.CMD

F10 LINK KL-20 --- LNKCTL.D20 FORLKI.REL STPLNK.D20
Loading and Operating Notes
STAT PACK is distributed with LOADER-CHAINB because STP is so large
it must be overlayed, and we realized not everyone has LINK-10 with
the OVERLAY feature. Appendix 1 details the changes required to use
CHAINB with STP. Sometimes CHAINB cannot be used if any of the
MACRO sources are compiled with MACRO v52 or later.
When using LINK-OVERLAY, an excessively large number of commands
to STP may exhaust the LINK-OVERLAY scratch area and cause a fatal
error. This could result in loss of the output file when using
"ASSIGN" as well as loss of the in-core data set.
3) Testing STAT PACK:
When running STP with the test set of data, you must answer "NO" to
the first question, then type @STTST.CMD, after "WHICH COMMAND"
later STP will ask "ENTER DATA". The required data is as follows:
Then it should run by itself to the finish. Use FILCOM to compare
the answer file against STTST.FIL.
4) Data Limits:
STP is initially set at 700 data points, which with the program is
about 24k, and will grow to about 36k with 8000 data points. Since
STP is dynamically allocated, the user may specify any data size up
to cormax. However, it is not recommended that STP be allowed to
"go virtual", since STP will work against itself for a virtual job.
5) Undocumented Commands:
DISCR - Discriminate Analysis (type help to first question)
FRIED - Friedman Two-way Analysis of Variance
SIGN - Sign Test
SIZE - Gives the size of each overlay
SAVE - Does the same thing as "STORE"
SYS - Exit and save (without printing) "ASSIGN"ed output
In addition. there are three new experimental commands:
(USE WITH CAUTION)
ITEMA - Item Analysis
SHADE - Shade plotting
LATIN - Latin Squares statistics
Although they are not documented there should be no problem in

Using STP with GALAXY
The following procedure uses an experimental set of routines called
QUEWMU.MAC to allow STP to enter requests into the PRINT queue in
the manner described in the STP write-up while operating on systems
1) Put the following universal files on the area used to load STP:
MONSYS (if Decsystem-20)
2) Generate FORPRM.UNV
3) Compile QUEWMU.MAC
4) Fudge QUEWMU.REL into FORLKI.REL
5) Load STP with instructions in section (D) of "How to Put STAT PACK
on your Decsystem 10 or 20"
