CLASP and CLIP: Common Lisp Analytical Statistics Package

CLASP (Common Lisp Analytical Statistics Package) provides the basic functionality of a statistics package. The CLIM interface includes a "notebook" that is both a "desktop" for icons and a Lisp interactor pane, and uses BBN's SciGraph package for plotting. The Common Lisp Instrumentation Package (CLIP) is available along with CLASP. CLIP is designed to allow AI system developers and evaluators a portable way to define and manage "alligator clips" for instrumenting their programs. CLIP produces data about program behavior in CLASP format, as well as other commonly used data formats. It currently has facilities to support experiment design, such as scenario scripting and factorial combination of independent variables, and can collect data in summary form (at the end of each trial) or based upon the occurrence of specific events (both periodic and non-periodic). Using CLIP/CLASP the experimenter can: - collect and filter data while a program runs - define and automatically run experiments to evaluate a program's behavior in different conditions - transform, filter and partition data in powerful ways - examine data graphically and statistically - run parametric and computer-intensive tests
