 Description: Standard statistics using Welford's algorithm
- Standard statistics using Welford's algorithm
+ Statistics::Welford provides standard statistics (mean value,
+ variance, standard deviation, minimum and maximum value as well as
+ the number of elements) using Welford's algorithm.
- This description was automagically extracted from the module by dh-make-perl.
+ Welford's algorithm is much more efficient compared to the naïve
+ algorithm implemented in e.g. Statistics::Basic::StdDev. It
+ especially does not need to load all values into RAM at the same
+ time.
