Comparison of two independent coefficients of reliability ---------------------------------------------------------

^feldti^ rel1 rel2, N1() n2() K1() k2()

Description -----------

The reliabilities of two tests (^rel1^ & ^rel2^) are compared between two samples of ^n1^ & ^n2^ subjects. The tests are ^k1^ and ^k2^ items long respectively. The independence of the samples is assumed.

If ^n2^ is not specified, the samples are supposed to be of equal sizes. If ^k2^ is not specified, the tests are supposed to be of equal lengths.
