Description

related to ticket:258

When performing a permutation test you are sampling from a binary (Bernoulli) distribution and number of successes, k, will follow a binomial distribution. Typically the parameter p is obviously estimated as k/n, but I would like some functionality how to calculate confidence interval.

Should check into GSL to see if there is useful support.

I am not sure how the calculation should be performed but I suppose a Baysian approach might be sound, having a uniform distribution on p.
