Hi everybody,

somehow i dont get the shapiro wilk test for normality. i just can´t  
find what the H0 is .

i tried :


	Shapiro-Wilk normality test

data:  rnorm(5000)
W = 0.9997, p-value = 0.6205

If normality is the H0, the test says it´s probably not normal, doesn 
´t it ?

5000 is the biggest n allowed by the test...

are there any other test ? ( i know qqnorm already ;)

thanks in advance
