Hi.  I'm not familiar with the equivalent to the "prtest" command but regarding 
the use of ANOVA for categorical data, i think it will be inappropriate to use 
it because of the assumptions involved.  Although some tried to apply ANOVA to 
categorical variables that can be assigned temporary magnitudes.


Quoting klrobson@essex.ac.uk:
