 Statistics::TTest - Perl module to perform T-test on 2 independent samples

DESCRIPTION ^

Statistics::TTest

 This is the Statistical T-Test module to compare 2 independent samples. It takes 2 array of point measures, 
 compute the confidence intervals using the PointEstimation module (which is also included in this package)
  and use the T-statistic to test the null hypothesis. If the null hypothesis is rejected, the difference 
  will be given as the lower_clm and upper_clm of the TTest object. 

Statistics::TTest::Sufficient

 This module is a subclass of Statistics::TTest. Instead of taking the real data points as the input, 
 it will compute the confidence intervals based on the sufficient statistics and the sample size inputted. 
 To use this module, you need to pass the sample size, the sample mean , and the sample variance into the load_data()
 function. The output will be exactly the same as the Statistics::TTest Module.
