Bug#288959: ITP: mn-fit -- interactive analysis package for fitting data and histograms

Package: wnpp

  Description     : interactive analysis package for fitting data and histograms

Mn_Fit can perform a wide variety of mathematical fits and analyses on data
or histograms read in from a file.  The program is interactive with a
graphical display, so it is easy for the user to explore different fits
while viewing the results.  Many functions are built into the package, and
new ones can be added.

Some capabilities of Mn_Fit include built-in maximum likelihood fits,
fitting of 1-D and 2-D histograms, fitting several histograms
simultaneously, applying constraints on function parameters, and limited
use of Monte Carlo statistics.  The program can produce PostScript output
of a quality suitable for publication.
