AGDESIGN generates the factors and pseudo-factors required to define a generally balanced design. To do this it uses a backing-store subfile that contains the repertoire of available designs, together with the information required to form them.
FDESIGNFILE can be used to form this subfile. The
DATAFILE parameter supplies the name of a file containing the necessary information, and the
SUBFILE parameters specify the name of the backing-store file and subfile where it is to be stored. Details of the format and contents of the data file can be obtained by setting option
catalogue which produces a catalogue of the backing-store file, and a setting
data which prints the lines of data as they are read.
FDESIGNFILE uses the standard Genstat directives for input and output.
Commands for: Design of experiments.
