Yes, Vlado, I agree with you. In fact in a simulation (of a sort of a
minority game) I'm running, the distribution of weights as well as the
distribution of degrees is scale-free (power law), which is a typical
situation for gradient networks. In any case, I just wanted to know if
there exists an easy way to compute averages and s.d. from inside
pajek/ucinet. But what you've told me might do the job too.
