The `cpf`

function computes the conditional probability function of
a competing event and can test equality of (only) two conditional
probability curves.

A proportional-odds model for the conditional probability function can
be fitted using either `cpfpo`

or `pseudocpf`

. The former
function uses the temporal process regression methodology while the
latter uses the pseudo value technique.
