well, JMP is the "cheaper" and less powerful version
of SAS (same brand) focused on a graphical approach to
the analysis. It is supposed to be simpler, but it is
just less powerful, definitely I do not like it.

Thank you, simple and efficient, I like it !

Yes it is exactly what I meant even though the concept
is not yet completely clear to me, I will study more
on that.

Thank you so much ! simple and efficient again !

I will study it, thanks for the link and for all the
suggestions
