RECIPE : REGression Confidence Intervals for PErcentiles
Mark Vangel vangel@nmr.mgh.harvard.edu NOTE: Mark Vangel developed this code while he was employeed by the NIST Statistical Engineering Division. Mark is no longer at NIST, but he can be reached at the above email address. Questions regarding downloading and installation of Recipe can be directed to alan.heckert@nist.gov. However, Alan Heckert does not support Recipe other than providing assistance with downloading and installing the software. If you have technical questions about RECIPE, you may contact Mark directly.

You only need the Acrobat reader. This reader is free (downloadable from the above Web site) and supported for most common computer systems (IBM PC Windows 3.1/Windows 95/Window NT, MacIntosh, most common Unix workstations). For best results with Netscape, it is recommended that you install the reader as a plugin rather than a helper application. This is done automatically for the PC installation. Other software may also be used to view PDF files (e.g., the latest version of ghostview), although the performance is typically not as seamless as the Adobe Acrobat reader. Latex and Postscript versions of the user's guide are distributed with the software. The technical documents are available from the author. The program RECIPE can be used to calculate onesided tolerance limits (or, equivalently, onesided confidence limits on quantiles) from an arbitrary regression model with or without a random batch effect.
Files distributed:For convenience, Unix users can download a single compressed tar file. After downloading, enter the following command to uncompress and unpack the file:
For convenience, PC users can download the source and data files via a single selfextracting zip file. After downloading, enter the following command to unpack the file:
NOTE: The Windows executables were update 2/1/2008. The previous executables were built using a much older compiler for Windows NT/95/98. If you still have one of these older operating systems, contact alan.heckert@nist.gov to obtain these older versions.
