Implements the estimation of local (and global) association measures: Ducher's Z, pointwise mutual information and normalized pointwise mutual information. The significance of local (and global) association is accessed using p-values estimated by permutations. Finally, using local association subgroup analysis, it identifies if the association between variables is dependent on the value of another variable.
zebu R package implements different tools related to local association measures in three main functions. It replaces the previous web application written using

Added control to how dataset should be permuted through group argument
Added progress bar to parallelized permutation test
Changed parallelization interface to foreach and parallel
Corrected typos in vignette
When p-value is estimated to be zero by permutations, displays that it is inferior to one over number of permutations and not equal to zero
Corrected formula for estimating p-values ()
Added plots describing dataset and corrected typos in vignette
Removed buggy parallel interface (too many cross-platform problems)
