Inferences for ratios of normal means

The last R newsletter (volume 7/1, April 2007) has a solution to a long standing problem. The new package mratios can deal now with ratios of means of normally distributed random variables and ratios of regression coefficients arise in a variety of ways. For two-sample problems, the package is capable of constructing confidence
intervals and performing the related tests when the group variances are assumed homogeneous or heterogeneous.
