at the EEGLAB workshop we noticed (with a participant that did not have the stats toolbox) that there is no statfun/private/finv function. It should be possible to find a replacement function somewhere

I'll copy the version from Octave over

Could you also move those to external/stats and remove them altogether from other FT locations?

I added finv with its dependencies (r8409). I don't fully understand the list you put here. After filtering out stuff that is private to the stats toolbox (e.g. display, checkdata) or part of matlab builtin (e.g. subsasgn, subsref) I'm left with this list: binocdf binopdf hline nanmean nanstd nansum nanvar randsample range tcdf tinv vline I will move these to external/stats, or get them from octave and add the replacement. Also, I will make sure ft_defaults adds external/stats to the path.

Note: I've left the original Octave copyright and GPL notices intact. This seemed most appropriate to me, especially since the files will be in /external/ anyway.

Eelke Spaak - 2013-08-21 16:18:18 +0200

fixed as of 8411

Note: I have left the nan* mex-files also in /src/, but removed them from everywhere else.

changing lots of bugs from resolved to closed.
