t.test has a var.equal option that you can set to FALSE to use the Welch

Subject: [R] Welch test for equality of variance


Using R 2.2.1 on a Windows machine.

Has anyone programmed the Welch test for equality of variances?

I tried RSiteSearch, but this gave references to t test and oneway.test,
which are not quite what I need.....I need the Welch test itself, for use in
a meta-analysis (to determine if variances are equal).
