Hi all,
sorry if this posting appears twice, but I seemed to have some trouble on my first attempt.

I am wondering if the definition and/or algorithm for the 'Hinges' (upper and lower) in Boxplot available somewhere online? I would like to know a little more than what is described in boxplot.stats. In particular I am trying to understand exactly how it differs from the default (Type 7) of the quantile function.

Many thanks,
Fredrik Odegaard
