A Batch-Style Statistics Generator for Wind Turbine Data

GenStats is a fairly simple utility that generates statistics for one or more files.  Although they may be of different lengths, all files read during a single run of GenStats must be the same format.  If all you want to generate is statistics, GenStats is easier to use than Crunch.  Also, Crunch requires that all files have the same length.

GenStats was written to process wind-turbine test or simulation data, but it may be useful for most any kind of tabular data.
