Name        : perl-Fsdb
Product     : Fedora 21
Version     : 2.51
Release     : 3.fc21
URL         : http://www.isi.edu/~johnh/SOFTWARE/FSDB/
Summary     : A set of commands for manipulating flat-text databases from the shell
Description :
FSDB is a package of commands for manipulating flat-ASCII databases from
shell scripts.  FSDB is useful to process medium amounts of data (with
very little data you'd do it by hand, with megabytes you might want a
real database).  FSDB is very good at doing things like:

        - extracting measurements from experimental output
        - re-examining data to address different hypotheses
        - joining data from different experiments
        - eliminating/detecting outliers
        - computing statistics on data (mean, confidence intervals,
                correlations, histograms)
        - reformatting data for graphing programs

Rather than hand-code scripts to do each special case, FSDB provides
higher-level functions than one gets with raw perl or shell scripts.
(Some features:  control uses names instead of column numbers,
it is self-documenting, and is robuts with good error and memory handling.)
