LINE_FIT

Name


      LINE_FIT

Purpose


      Fit a line to weighted x,y points.

Category


Calling Sequence


      line_fit, x, y

Inputs


      x, y = arrays of x, and y coordinates. in

Keyword Parameters


Keywords


        WEIGHTS=wt Array of weights for points (def=1).
        XM=xm Returned weighted mean x.
        YM=ym Returned weighted mean y.
        SLOPE=b0 Returned slope of fitted line.
        XREG=b1 Regression coefficient of Y on X.
        YREG=b2 Regression coefficient of X on Y.
                    (use 1/b2 for slope to plot line)
        /PLOT Plot b0 line.
        /XPLOT Plot b1 line. Normal linear regression.
        /YPLOT Plot b2 line.
                    May give plot keywords (plot 1 line at a time).

Notes


      Notes: By default line is fitted to minimize the sum of
      the mean square distances from the line using an
      algorithm by Robert Jensen. May also specify a regression
      of Y on X or X on Y. The fitted line passes through the
      mean point.
