NAME ^

st - simple statistics from the command line interface (CLI)

DESCRIPTION ^

st is a command-line tool to calculate simple statistics from a file or standard input.

USAGE ^

  st [options] [input_file]

OPTIONS

FUNCTIONS

  --N|n|count           # sample size
  --max                 # maximum
  --mean|average|avg|m  # mean
  --median              # median
  --min                 # minimum
  --stdev|sd            # standard deviation
  --stderr|sem|se       # standard error of mean
  --sum|s               # sum of elements of the sample
  --variance|var        # variance

If no functions are selected, st will print the default output:

    N     min  max  sum  mean  stddev

You can also use the following predefined sets of functions:

  --summary   # five-number summary (min q1 median q3 max)
  --complete  # everything

FORMATTING

    --format|fmt|f=<value>  # default: "%g"

Examples of valid formats:

      %d    signed integer, in decimal
      %e    floating-point number, in scientific notation
      %f    floating-point number, in fixed decimal notation
      %g    floating-point number, in %e or %f notation

  --delimiter|d=<value>   # default: "\t"

  --no-header|nh          # don't display header
  --transpose-output|to   # switch rows and columns

INPUT VALIDATION

By default, st skips invalid input with a warning.

You can change this behavior with the following options:

  --strict   # throws an error, interrupting process
  --quiet|q  # no warning
