The shapiro.test function outputs a value of the W statistic, which
should be 1 if the distribution is normal, and a p-value for the test
(as the documentation states).

I'm a bit confused with some results. I'm getting a W=0.9977 and a

I was expecting that a W of 0.9977 would tell me that the distribution
is normal so p-value should be small ...

What am I missing ?
