alternative = "two.sided", conf = 0.95)

Arguments

data

A vector of quantitative data. Not required if xbar and n are supplied by the user.

null.mu

The expectation for the null distribution.

xbar

Sample mean. Not required if is.null(data)==FALSE

sigma

The null distribution standard deviation

n

The sample size. Not required if is.null(data)==FALSE

alternative

Type of test. One of three must be specified "two.sided", "less", or "greater"

conf
