// Packages can be either red, green or blue.

// Set up the data using records.

// Perform the calculation.

// The AnovaTable property gives us a classic anova table.
// We can write the table directly to the console:
printfn "%O" anova.AnovaTable
printfn ""

// A Cell object represents the data in a cell of the model,
// i.e. the data related to one level of the factor.
// We can use it to access the group means of our color groups.

// First we get the index so we can easily iterate
// through the levels:
let colorFactor = anova.GetFactor<string>(0)
for level in colorFactor do
    printfn "Mean for group '%O': %.4f" level (anova.Cells.Get(level).Mean)

// We could have accessed the cells directly as well:
printfn "Variance for blue packages: %A" (anova.Cells.Get("Blue").Variance)
printfn ""
        
// We can get the summary data for the entire model
// by using the TotalCell property:
let totalSummary = anova.TotalCell
printfn "Summary data:"
printfn "# observations: %.0f" totalSummary.Count
printfn "Grand mean:     %.4f" totalSummary.Mean
