Dear Haluk,

I will not try to help with the programming, but I do have a
suggestion for the content of the table: give the confidence interval
for the difference between the two means.  That will be much more
useful to readers than the p-value.  In current practice, after you
have given the confidence interval, the p-value is optional.
