FSGOF COMMANDS
**************
OUTPUT
Specify an output filename in .
MERROR
Specify the constant value of the measurement error on the z-transformed fuzzy-set scores.
The default is .05.
DAMP
Specify the damping factor for the z-transformed fuzzy-set scores. The damping factor d
is such that if a fuzzy-set score is less than d or greater than 1-d, the z transformation
for that score is set to cdfinv(d) or cdfinv(1-d), where cdfinv is the inverse of the
standard unit normal cumulative distribution function. This ensures the analysis is not
influenced by z transformations approaching +/- infinity. The default value is .01.
WEIGHT
Input column weights. This can be used to exclude specific cases from the analysis.
FINISH
Place at end of the input file.
COMMENT
Specify any comment in with maximum length of 80 characters on the line.
DATA
Specify the number of cases (rows) and the number of factors (columns-1)
for the analysis, immediately followed by the data. The first column
is the outcome of interest and the remaining columns are the factors,
not to exceed 10 factors. See the example input code.
