distrEx -- Extensions of Package distr
distrEx provides some extensions of package distr:
further functionals: var, sd, IQR, mad, median, skewness, kurtosis
distances between distributions (Hellinger, Cramer von Mises, Kolmogorov, total variation, "convex contamination")
lists of distributions,
conditional distributions in factorized form
conditional expectations in factorized form
Support for extreme value distributions has moved to package RobExtremes
|Depends:||R(>= 3.4), methods, distr(>= 2.8.0)|
|Imports:||startupmsg, utils, stats|
Some functions of package stats have intentionally been masked, but
completely retain their functionality --- see
If any of the packages e1071, moments, fBasics is to be used
together with distrEx the latter must be attached after any of the
first mentioned. Otherwise
defined as methods in distrEx may get masked. To re-mask, you
kurtosis <- distrEx::kurtosis; skewness <- distrEx::skewness.

Demos are available --- see
G. Jay Kerns, email@example.com, has provided a major contribution,
in particular the functionals
kurtosis are due to him.
You may suppress the start-up banner/message completely by setting
options("StartupBanner"="off") somewhere before loading this package by
require in your R-code / R-session.
"StartupBanner" is not defined (default) or setting
options("StartupBanner"="complete") the complete start-up banner is
For any other value of option
"StartupBanner" (i.e., not in
c(NULL,"off","complete")) only the version information is displayed.
The same can be achieved by wrapping the
As for general
packageStartupMessage's, you may also suppress all
the start-up banner by wrapping the
startupmsg-version 0.5 on.
Note: The first two numbers of package versions do not necessarily reflect package-individual development, but rather are chosen for the distrXXX family as a whole in order to ease updating "depends" information.
