bfsl: Best-Fit Straight Line

Provides the solution from York (1968) <doi:10.1016/S0012-821X(68)80059-7> for fitting a straight line to bivariate data with errors in both coordinates. It gives unbiased estimates of the intercept, slope and standard errors of the best-fit straight line to independent points with (possibly correlated) normally distributed errors in both x and y. Other commonly used errors-in-variables methods, such as orthogonal distance regression, geometric mean regression or Deming regression are special cases of York’s solution.
