# rriskDistributions

`rriskDistributions`

is a collection of functions for fitting distributions to given data or known quantiles.

The two main functions `fit.perc()`

and `fit.cont()`

provide users a GUI that allows to choose a most appropriate distribution without any knowledge of the R syntax. Note that this package is part of the rrisk project.

E.g., we can fit random data generated from a gamma distribution with `fit.cont()`

:

`res <- fit.cont(data2fit = rgamma(n = 37, shape = 4, rate = 0.08))`

This will open a new window where the user can inspect diagnostic plots for a variety of possible distributions and then choose the distribution she wants to continue working with (the chosen distribution will be stored in the `res`

variable):

## Updating to the latest version of rriskDistributions
