Providing a Matrix for the GLM Program



IMPORTANT: The names of your files should be unique to you so that your files are not overwritten by those of another user.

How do you want to provide your matrix?

Anonymous FTP

IMPORTANT: Any file that you provide should be in an ASCII (text or prn) form, not in a proprietary spread sheet or word processor form.

To send your matrix to www1.fpl.fs.fed.us via anonymous FTP, do the following. (These directions are for a command line FTP program. FTP can be run from the command line of all UNIX systems. FTP can be run from the command line of a DOS window for Windows 95 systems. Also mouse-based FTP programs are available for most systems. If FTP does not run on your machine, mail your data to sverrill@fs.fed.us and request that it be placed in the pub/data anonymous FTP directory.) In the directory that contains the data that you wish to send, type

ftp www1.fpl.fs.fed.us

You will then be prompted for a login name. Type

anonymous

You will then be prompted for a password. Type your e-mail address (e.g., sverrill@fs.fed.us). Next type

cd pub/data

Then type

put filename

where filename is the name of the matrix file on your machine. This filename should be unique to you so that your file is not overwritten by another user. After the data transfer has been completed, type

quit



Return to the hypothesis testing program.


Typing the matrix into a form

What name do you want for your matrix file?

The name should be unique to you to prevent your file from being overwritten by another user. (The file will be written to the pub/data directory in the anonymous FTP area of the www1.fpl.fs.fed.us server. This file will be removed after it is one week old.)



How many rows are there supposed to be in the matrix?
(400 or fewer)

How many columns are there supposed to be in the matrix?
(75 or fewer)

Type the matrix into the following text box. Hit return at the end of each row of the matrix.
