Dap [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Dap is a small statistics and graphics package, based on C, that provides core methods of data management, analysis, and graphics commonly used in statistical consulting practice. Anyone familiar with basic C syntax can learn Dap quickly and easily from the manual and the examples in it. Advanced features of C are not necessary, although they are available. As of Version 3.0, Dap can read SBS programs, thereby freeing the user from having to learn any C at all to run straightforward analyses. The manual contains a brief introduction to the C syntax needed for C-style programming for Dap. Because Dap processes files one line at a time, rather than reading entire files into memory, it can be, and has been, used on data sets that have very many lines and/or very many variables.
