This computes the arithmetic mean of a value in a group. See avg_if() for a for a related conditional operator.

group describes the notes to be examined and may be any group designator including a find() query.

value may be any valid expression, but will usually be a reference to an attribute; short form Boolean attribute expressions are acceptable.

For example:

$MyNumber = avg(children(/Catalog),$Price); 

returns the average price of all the items in Catalog.
