gbquant - Print quantiles of data distribution

gbquant [options]

Print distribution quantiles. Data are read from standard input. If no -x or -q options are provided, a quantiles table is plotted. The number of quantiles can be chosen with -n. The option -x #1 prints the quantile associated with the value #1, while -q #2 print the value associate with the quantile #2. Of course #2 must be between 0 and 1. Multiple values can be provided to -x or -q, separated with commas. With -w #1,#2 all the observations inside the quantile range [#1,#2) are printed. If more columns are provided with option -t, the specified action is repeated on each column. Without -t, columns are pooled unless -w is specified, in which case all rows whose first element is inside the range are printed. A different column for sorting can be specified with option -W. If 0 is specified, the cut is applied with respect to all columns
