MINSTAT <data>,L
computes basic statistics of active variables for selected observations
and lists the results in a tabular form

Variable   mean      stddev          N  minimum   maximum

Furthermore the table of results is saved as a matrix file STAT.M
in the current data path.

By giving specification JITTER=<integer> the table as well as the matrix
file STAT.M is extended by two extra columns '#val' and 'jitter'
giving the number of distinct values of each variable when that number
does not exceed <integer>. Otherwise '#val' is set 0.
'jitter' is computed as ('maximum'-'minimum')/('#val'-1) giving
suitable jitter steps for XJITTER and YJITTER specifications
in scatter plots (See SCAT?).
                                       See an example on the next page!
