ie 'normal' or 'Gaussian' distribution.
Much doesn't work that way, but much does.
(eg a need to calculate death-by-horse-kick distribution when horses
were a major transportation engine led to the formulation of the
(eponymous) Poisson distribution).

If I remember my Statistics A level rightly, the classic Poisson distribution is that of the chance of getting
kicked to death by a horse in 5 Prussian Army Corps in a year.  In other words, something that does happen,
but very rarely - certainly not enough to have a graph-shape to it, like most other distributions.

Just received my CodeWarrior CD in the post :-)

Will check it out but probably stay with AVR chips for now.

Did you have to pay for the CD?  I don't see an option to do anything but

The bell curve only works for *one* variable and a certain (random) bias
of the data points, and for a large number of points, afaik. Too many
conditions for anything but an ideal situation.
