< language , library , statistics > (BMDP) A statistical language and library of over forty statistical routines developed at UCLA in 1961, first implemented in Fortran for the IBM 7090 . Tapes of the original source were distributed for free all over the world.
BMDP is the second iteration of the original BIMED programs. It was developed at UCLA Health Sciences Computing facility, with NIH funding. BMDP used keyword parameters to defined what was to be done rather than the fixed card format used by original BIMED programs. Hence the name BMDP, P standing for parameter.
BMDP supports many statistical funtions: simple data description, survival analysis , ANOVA , multivariate analyses , regression analysis , and time series analysis.
BMDP Professional combines the full suite of BMDP Classic (Dynamic) release 7.0 with the BMDP New System 2.0 Windows front-end.
