distr {sads}R Documentation

Continuous or discrete distributions

Description

Checks if the distribution is continuous or discrete

Usage

distr(distribution)

Arguments

distribution

Character. The name of the distribution ("geom" for "fitgeom", "weibull" for "fitweibull", etc.

Details

Returns whether a given distribution (used for a sad or rad model) is "discrete" or "continuous". The name is compared to a list of known distributions, so distributions not used in the sads package will return "NA" with a warning.

In the package sads up to version 0.2.3, the user was required to explicitly set a distr argument in some calls to radpred and qqsad. Now this is handled automatically, and attempts to set the "distr" argument explicitly are ignored.
