```

### Arguments

`x` |
a numeric vector providing the first dataset |

`y` |
optional second dataset |

`mean` |
the mean to compare with |

`sd` |
the known standard deviation |

`alternative` |
the alternative to be used in the test |

### Details

The Gauss test is in every Text-Book, but not in R, because it is nearly never used. However it is included here for educational purposes.

### Value

A classical `"htest"`

`data.name` |
The name of the dataset as specified |

`method` |
