## Fit a distribution to data

### Description

### Usage

### Arguments

 d An object. The package provides methods for distribution objects such as those from Normal() or Binomial() etc. x A vector of data to compute the likelihood. ... Arguments passed to methods. Unevaluated arguments will generate a warning to catch mispellings or other possible errors.
