Subject: BETADIST parameter Cumulative
Hi, Our definition of BETADIST currently has a 6th optional parameter Logical Cumulative = TRUE() that is not supported by any of the "usual" applications. If FALSE(), BETADIST is supposed to return the value of the probability density function. If TRUE(), the value of the cumulative distribution function, which is what applications do. Additionally it doesn't have the constraint a <= x <= b that applications have, and explicitly says so. Where did that originate from? I propose to remove that parameter and to add the constraint, otherwise the function would be incompatible with all applications, it seems. Eike -- Automatic string conversions considered dangerous. They are the GOTO statements of spreadsheets. --Robert Weir on the OpenDocument formula subcommittee's list.
