The function may be called by the names: g08ckc, nag_nonpar_gofstat_anddar_normal or nag_anderson_darling_normal_prob.
Calculates the Anderson–Darling test statistic (see g08chc) and its upper tail probability for the small sample correction:

and the data in y is not sorted in ascending order.
Probabilities are calculated using piecewise polynomial approximations to values estimated by simulation.
8Parallelism and Performance
g08ckc is threaded by NAG for parallel execution in multithreaded implementations of the NAG Library.
Please consult the X06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this function. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.
This example calculates the statistics for data assumed to arise from a fully-unspecified Normal distribution and the -value.
