SAS is using big Procedures for most things.
Unless a user looks for something known, most of these names are
bartlett, levene, mood, spearmanr, mannwhitneyu, ...
(I never heard of most of them, before working my way through it.)
I tried to put a descriptive prefix on some of the tests
I haven't figured out a good pattern yet for combining tests in the
direction of the SAS style.
the name for TOST should be ``equivalence_test`` or something similar.
The main helpful information are pages about when to use which tests.
my specific page
for general 1 sample, 2 sample and k sample tests overview tables are
available on the internet.
