UMLS::Association::StatFinder - provides the statistical association information of the concept pairs in the UMLS

DESCRIPTION For more information please see the documentation.


use UMLS::Association::StatFinder; use UMLS::Association::ErrorHandler;

%params = ();

$statfinder = UMLS::Association::StatFinder->new(\%params); die "Unable to create UMLS::Association::StatFinder object.\n" if(!$statfinder);

my $cui1 = C0018563; my $cui2 = C0446516;

# calculate measure assocation my $measure = "ll"; my $score = $statfinder->calculateStatistic($cui1, $cui2, $measure);


    To install the module, run the following magic commands:

    perl Makefile.PL
    make test
    make install

    This will install the module in the standard location. You will, most
    probably, require root privileges to install in standard system
    directories. To install in a non-standard directory, specify a prefix
    during the 'perl Makefile.PL' stage as:

    perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=/home/bridget

    It is possible to modify other parameters during installation. The
    details of these can be found in the ExtUtils::MakeMaker
    documentation. However, it is highly recommended not messing around
    with other parameters, unless you know what you're doing.
