Using DistList

Probability density functions and relational functions are created and edited in the same way as in NAADSM: please refer to chapter 6 in the NAADSM User's Guide for details.

One or more distributions can be saved in a DistList project file using commands on the File menu. Project files then can be subsequently opened and revised. To add a new distribution to a project file, click on the appropriate button in DistList. Select a cell in the first column of the distribution list to change the name of a distribution, or click on the Edit button to change the parameters of the distribution.

To share functions across applications, use the Copy selected function command on the Edit menu or the Copy button. The selected function will be copied to the clipboard, and can be pasted into any application that supports NAADSM-style probability density and relational functions, such as NAADSM itself, WH, or DistMixer. Functions can be pasted into DistList from other applications as well.
