Hi all,

I've been in need of the equivalent of matlab's regress function which

performs multilinear regression. After a bit of google searching, I

found this old code from ancient history:

http://osdir.com/ml/python.scientific.user/2004-04/msg00029.htmlHowever, after a quick spruce-up to current scipy and numpy notation

(which I could post here if it's useful) it seems, from a quick test,

to perform as advertised.

Here begin my questions. I have looked through the scipy

documentation, and can't see any other routines that do the same task,

apart, perhaps from the odr module or using routines from the lapack

or blas libraries. These latter options, however, I don't know

anything about, and there aren't readily applicable examples floating

around to base my effort on.

(1) Have I missed some multilinear regression routine directly

implemented in scipy? If yes, how can we improve the documentation so

the next person can find it more easily.

(2) If there isn't an equivalent routine, would it be useful to

include this one? It could perhaps go in scipy.linalg.

Thanks for your thoughts,

Angus.
