TESTDB — Contents of databank, lists of cases and parameters

This program examines an existing databank and lists the actual contents, markers, cases, missing data, intra-family relations, and coding of ethnicity. Additionally, the program can be used to produce genetic maps in html-format either from databank or from external sources.

            07 DEMO Examples that illustrate program function
            - LG19:     Logical unit number of databank (vox_parms.db)

            - LG21:     Logical unit number of databank (vox_spect.dbnew)
                        valid numbers are 20-21
            - PROT = 0: Short table of contents
                   = 1: Detailed table of contents
                   = 2: Generate ident-file for specified study "STUD"

                   = 9: Generate HTML-based program documentation
            - LPRT = v: Logical unit number of output file (mode=0-2: 30-45)
            - STUD = s: Study number for which ident-file is to be generated
            - SRCE = 0: Solaris system (PROT=9)
                   = 1: Microsoft Windows with dive "D" (PROT=9)
                   = 2: Microsoft Windows with dive "F" (PROT=9)
                   = 3: Microsoft Windows with dive "G" (PROT=9)

Fig. 03: Distribution of mean vocal pitch amplitude in healthy female speakers (ages 18-25 vs. 26-35 years), computed from the experimental condition of "reading out loud emotionally neutral text". This distribution is completely different from that of same age male speakers (Fig. F04), thus indicating that male - female differences in mean vocal pitch encompass not just the 1-octave shift in frequency but other characteristics as well.
