This book presents guidelines for the development and evaluation of statistical software designed to ensure minimum acceptable statistical functionality as well as ease of interpretation and use. It consists of the proceedings of a forum that focused on three qualities of statistical software: richness--the availability of layers of output sophistication, guidance--how the package helps a user do an analysis and do it well, and exactness--determining if the output is "correct" and when and how to warn of potential problems.
