Best library for basic stats

P: n/a
Is there any decent library for basic stats? I am just looking for the
basics, like quartiles, median, standard deviation, mean, min, max,
regression, etc.

I was going to use SciPy, but I use Python 2.4, and it seems to be
supported primarily for 2.3...

What other statistical packages have any level of public support at
this point?

thanks

I would definitely look at SciPy. It works fine with Python 2.4. The
new scipy_core has basic stats (mean, min, max, standard deviation)
built in as methods to the array object.

A new scipy_core release will be made in a few days. But, you can get
started with the release already available. Look for the download link
at http://numeric.scipy.org

For *much* more stats look at full scipy (you can just check out the
stats sub-package if you want). The full scipy can be checked out of
SVN anonymously (or browsed through the web) at

http://svn.scipy.org/svn/scipy/trunk
