fn.variance & fn.stdev - flag population/sample #51
Is this still an issue? I'm having trouble finding any distinction in the source, but this is an old issue.
This may not be the best place to discuss this, but is passing flags the best way to handle sample/population distinctions? I'm sure there is plenty of code that depends on it, so it would be bad to break existing code, but creating a populationStdDev() and sampleStdDev() could be a lot more readable in code that calls jStat than a flag.
