**What it does**

This program implements the non-pooled t-test for two samples where the alternative hypothesis is two-sided or one-sided. The program takes four inputs:

- The first input file is a TABULAR format file representing the first sample and consisting of one column only.
- The second input file is a TABULAR format file representing the first sample and consisting of one column only.
- The third input is the sidedness of the t-test: either two-sided or, one-sided with m1 less than m2 or, one-sided with m1 greater than m2. 
- The fourth input is the equality status of the standard deviations of both populations.
- The output file is a TXT file representing the result of the two-sample t-test.


**Example**

Let us have the first input file representing the first sample as follows::

	5
	4
	8
	6
	7
	2
	1
	1
	0
	6
	4
	5
	7
	5
	3
	2
	5
	8
	7
	6
	4

And the second input file representing the second sample as follows::

	2
	3
	5
	1
	2
	7
	5
	4
	3
	2
	7
	6
	0
	8
	4
	6
	9
	2
	4
	5
	6

Runnig the program and choosing "Two-sided" and "Equal" as parameters will give the following output::

	Two Sample t-test

	data:  sample1 and sample2 
	t = -0.3247, df = 40, p-value = 0.7471
	alternative hypothesis: true difference in means is not equal to 0 
	95 percent confidence interval:
 	-1.720030  1.243839 
	sample estimates:
	mean of x mean of y 
 	4.333333  4.571429
