Methods

q
signature(save = "Distribution"): returns the (left-continuous) quantile function, i.e.; $q(s)=inf{t|P(object<=t)>=s}$
q.l
signature(object = "Distribution"): from distr-2.6 onwards, we provide this as a synonym for method q; this synonym more explicitely states that we are dealing with the left-continuous variant of a quantile function. It is useful in particular when used from the console in RStudio, as RStudio catches calls to q() and treats them separately from usual R evaluation. The developers of RStudio have been asked to fix this and comply with standard R evaluation which explicitely allows overloading q() as we do it in this package, but so far have refused to do so, as they claim overloading q() was insane.
