Can S-Plus users inform me about existing software for the analysis
(multiple linear regression) of compositional (mixture) data?
The sum of components equals one.
However the data are not obtained according to any experimental design,
it are just random data.
I refer to the work of Aitchison:"The Analysis of Compositional Data",
edited by Chapman and Hall.

Thank you.
