Kleanthis Koupidis, Aikaterini Chatzopoulou, Charalampos Bratsas

Introduction

This document describes the use of the functions implemented in DescriptiveStats.OBeu package in OpenCPU environment, after installing OpenCPU and DescriptiveStats.OBeu package on OpenCPU server address(/ocpu/test).

How to use functions

 ../library/ {name of the library} /R/ {function}

OpenCPU and DescriptiveStats.OBeu

ds.analysis

In this example we will use ds.analysis function that returns in a single call a json string or a list with the following components:

ds.analysis components

Select library and function

  1. Go to: yourserver/ocpu/test

  2. Copy and paste the following function to the endpoint

../library/DescriptiveStats.OBeu/R/ds.analysis
# library/ {name of the library} /R/ {function}
  1. Select Method: Post

Adding parameters parameters

Click add parameters every time you want to add a new parameters and values.

  1. Define the input data:

    • Param Name: data
    • Param Value: Wuppertal_df
  2. Define the outliers parameter(optional):

    • Param Name: outliers
    • Param Value: FALSE
  3. Define the fr.select parameter(optional):

    • Param Name: fr.select
    • Param Value: "Produktbereich"

You add likewise further parameters and change the default parameters of c.out, box.width, hist.class, corr.method, see DesciptiveStats.OBeu reference manual for further details.

Results

  1. copy the /ocpu/tmp/{this_id_number}/R/.val (second on the right panel)

  2. finally, paste yourserver/ocpu/tmp/{this_id_number}/R/.val on a new tab.
