Keyword Parameters


  CONFLIMIT: The fraction of the distribution encompassed. Default: 0.68

Outputs


  A 2-element vector of values that encompass a fraction CONFLIMIT
  of the distribution. For example, if CONFLIMIT=0.68 then Result gives
  the 16th and 85th percentiles.

Example


    IDL> a = 0.01*FINDGEN(101)
