blindreview: Blind Review Using Forward Search Procedures

Randomly assigns identification to one of the variables of the dataset, say Treatment, and assigns random numbers to all the observations of the dataset. Reorders the observations according to the random numbers, and then runs the appropriate forward search function on the blinded dataset. A file is created from which the user can identify any outliers using the graphics function in this package. Centers each fixed coefficient at the grand mean prior to graphing in order to further mask the treatment. An unmasking function is provided so that the user can identify the potential outliers in terms of their original values when blinding is no longer needed. Details of the forward search functions may be found in <>.
