.SH NAME
gbfun \- Apply functions to table of data
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B gbfun
[\fIoptions\fR] \fI \fR...
.SH DESCRIPTION
Compute arbitrary colum\-wise functions on data read from standard input.
Variable 'xi' stands for the i\-th column while 'x0' stands for the row
number, e.g. a function f(x1,x2) operates on the first and secod column.
With the option \fB\-t\fR the function is computed, in turn, on every column. In
this case f(x1,x2) stands for a function of the column itself and of the
following column (the index being a lead operator). In these cases 'x' is
equivalent to 'x1'. With \fB\-r\fR or \fB\-R\fR the function is recursevely computed
"columwise" on each row. In this case the variable 'x' identifies the
result of the previous evaluation. A lag operator can be specified with the
letter l, like in 'x1l2', which means the first column two steps before.
More functions can be specified and will be considered in turn.
