intro

Fit, plot and compare several (extreme value) distributions. Can also compute (truncated) distribution quantile estimates and draw a plot with return periods on a linear scale.

See the Vignette for an introduction to the package.

installation

CRAN_Status_Badge downloads

Install / load the package and browse through the examples:

install.packages("extremeStat")
library(extremeStat)
vignette(extremeStat)

# update to the current development version:
berryFunctions::instGit("brry/extremeStat")

trouble

If direct installation from CRAN doesn't work, your R version might be too old. In that case, an update is really recommendable: r-project.org. If you can't update R, try installing from source (github) via instGit or devtools as mentioned above. If that's not possible either, here's a manual workaround: click on Clone or Download - Download ZIP (topright, link), unzip the file to some place, then

setwd("that/path")
dd <- dir("extremeStat-master/R", full=T)
dummy <- sapply(dd, source)

This creates all R functions as objects in your globalenv workspace (and overwrites existing objects of the same name!).
