`VSPECTRALCHECK`

forms the spectral components from the canonical components of a multitiered design, and constrains any negative spectral components to zero.

`VSPREADSHEET`

saves results from a `REML`

analysis in a spreadsheet.

`VSUMMARY`

summarizes a variate, with classifying factors, into a data matrix of variates and factors.

`VSURFACE`

fits a 2-dimensional spline surface using `REML`

, and estimates its extreme point.

`VTABLE`

forms a variate and set of classifying factors from a table.

`VTCOMPARISONS`

calculates comparison contrasts within a multi-way table of predicted means from a `REML`

analysis.

`VUVCOVARIANCE`

forms the unit-by-unit variance-covariance matrix for specified variance components in a `REML`

model.

### W

`WADLEY`

fits models for Wadley’s problem, allowing alternative links and errors.

`WILCOXON`

performs a Wilcoxon Matched-Pairs (Signed-Rank) test.

`WINDROSE`

plots rose diagrams of circular data like wind speeds.

`WSTATISTIC`

calculates the Shapiro-Wilk test for Normality.

### X

`XOCATEGORIES`

performs analyses of categorical data from cross-over trials.

`XOEFFICIENCY`

calculates efficiency of estimating effects in cross-over designs.

`XOPOWER`

estimates the power of contrasts in cross-over designs.

### Y

`YTRANSFORM`

estimates the parameter lambda of a single parameter transformation.
