##### Pure R Implementation of Old pbeta()

pbetaRv1() is an implementation of the original (“version 1” pbeta() function in R (versions <= 2.2.x), before we started using TOMS 708 bratio() instead, see that help page also for references.

pbetaRv1() is basically a manual translation from C to R of the underlying pbeta_raw() C function, see in R's source tree at https://svn.r-project.org/R/branches/R-2-2-patches/src/nmath/pbeta.c

For consistency within R, we are using R's argument names (q, shape1, shape2) instead of C code's (x, pin, qin ).

It is only for the central beta distribution.

Keywords
distribution, math
##### Usage
pbetaRv1(q, shape1, shape2, lower.tail = TRUE,
eps = 0.5 * .Machine$double.eps, sml = .Machine$double.xmin,
verbose = 0)
##### Arguments
q, shape1, shape2

non-negative numbers, q in $[0,1]$, see pbeta.

lower.tail

indicating if $F(q; *)$ should be returned or the upper tail probability $1 - F(q)$.

eps

the tolerance used to determine congerence. eps has been hard coded in C code to 0.5 * .Machine$double.eps which is equal to $2^{-53}$ or 1.110223e-16. sml the smallest positive number on the typical platform. The default .Machine$double.xmin is hard coded in the C code (as DBL_MIN), and this is equal to $2^{-1022}$ or 2.225074e-308 on all current platforms.

verbose

integer indicating the amount of verbosity of diagnostic output, 0 means no output, 1 more, etc.

a number.

##### Note

The C code contains This routine is a translation into C of a Fortran subroutine by W. Fullerton of Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory.

# NOT RUN {
all.equal(pbetaRv1(1/4, 2, 3),
pbeta   (1/4, 2, 3))

N <- 1000
x <- sample.int(7, N, replace=TRUE) / 8
a <-   rlnorm(N)
b <- 5*rlnorm(N)
pbt <- pbeta(x, a, b)
for(i in 1:N) {
stopifnot(all.equal(pbetaRv1(x[i], a[i], b[i]), pbt[i]))
cat(".", if(i %% 20 == 0) paste0(i, "\n"))
}
