Hi Arnaud,

Why are you using df = n-2 in this function? According to my textbook in statistics, it should be df = n-1. Perhaps it would be better to use df as an input argument instead of n, that is the way I have the t values tabulated in my old textbook.

Thanks Carl and Andy, I've updated the file accordingly. Note, I removed the call to nanmin (part of the statistical toolbox).

Aside from "nanmin" being missing and undefined, there is an error in the loaded table. The column marked "0.25" contains the t-values for "0.2" as can be verified by comparison with any published set of tables.
Note: there is a 'nanmin' published at 6837; hope that's the one invoked here!

Hi Arnaud, I just downloaded your student-t table lookup program and cannot figure out where to get teh function "nanmin"--it is not in any of my libraries and does not present on a Matlab Central search. Thanks for any help.
