I'm am completely aware that all the other terms need to be calculated in order to determine whether the value is significant. I even mentioned this in 482056.

And, I guess I could be misusing your code, but when I feed it these values 5 0 4 1, it produces the same output exactly as my "misguided" code. Funnily enough, for those values, it produces the same output as tmoertel's (apparently equally misguided) code.

Is it only when given the larger set of test values 989 9400 43300 2400 that your special code does something extraordinarily clever that I'm to stupid to understand?

\$T->start( '[5 0 1 4]' ); print Fishers_Exact::fishers_exact( 5, 0, 1, 4 ); \$T->stop( '[5 0 1 4]' ); \$T->report; \$T->start( '[989 9400 43300 2400]' ); print Fishers_Exact::fishers_exact( 989, 9400, 43300, 2400 ); \$T->stop( '[989 9400 43300 2400]' ); \$T->report; __END__ P:\test>FET-tlm.pl 0.02380952380952380952380952380 1 trial of [5 0 1 4] ( 917us total), 917us/trial 0.9999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999 99999999999999999999999999999999952665545273822897512768877675 1 trial of [5 0 1 4] ( 917us total), 917us/trial 1 trial of [989 9400 43300 2400] ( 1.353s total), 1.353s/trial

Of course our results will match in those rare cases in which the FET sum happens to contain only one term.

Silence betokens consent

Not necessarily ;-) .

Care to try and explain that?

Maybe Fisher's Exact Test will elucidate the matter.
