Bug#842275: ITP: libstatistics-welford-perl -- Standard statistics using Welford's algorithm

Package: wnpp
Owner: Axel Beckert <abe@debian.org>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : libstatistics-welford-perl
  Version         : 0.02
  Upstream Author : Kaare Rasmussen <kaare@cpan.org>
* URL             : https://metacpan.org/release/Statistics-Welford
* License         : Artistic or GPL-1+
  Programming Lang: Perl
  Description     : Standard statistics using Welford's algorithm

Statistics::Welford provides standard statistics (mean value,
variance, standard deviation, minimum and maximum value as well as
the number of elements) using Welford's algorithm.

Welford's algorithm is much more efficient compared to the naïve
algorithm implemented in e.g. Statistics::Basic::StdDev. It especially
does not need to load all values into RAM at the same time.

The package will be maintained under the umbrella of the Debian Perl
