## Permutation t-test

### Description

Calculates a p-value for a t-test via permutations.

### Usage

```
perm.test(x, y, n.perm = NULL, var.equal = TRUE, pval = TRUE)
```

### Arguments

`x` |
A numeric vector. |

`y` |
A second numeric vector. |

`n.perm` |
Number of permutations to perform. If NULL, all possible permutations are considered, and an exact p-value is calculated. |

`var.equal` |
A logical variable indicating whether to treat the two population variances as being equal. |

`pval` |
If TRUE, return just the p-value. If FALSE, return the
actual permutation results (with the observed statistic as an
attribute, |

### Details

This calls the function `stats::t.test()`

to calculate a
t-statistic comparing the vectors `x`

and `y`

. Permutations
are perfomed to give an exact or approximate conditional p-value.

### Value

If `pval=TRUE`

, the output is a single number: the P-value
testing for a difference in the distributions of the populations from
which `x`

and `y`

were drawn.
If `pval=FALSE`

, the output is a vector of the t statistics from
the permutations. An attributed `"tobs"`

contains the t
statistic with the observed data.

### Examples

```
x <- c(43.3, 57.1, 35.0, 50.0, 38.2, 61.2)
y <- c(51.9, 95.1, 90.0, 49.7, 101.5, 74.1)
perm.test(x,y)
```
