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):
