Specifies the information required to fit a Negative Binomial generalized
linear model, with known `theta`

parameter, using `glm()`

.

`theta` |
The known value of the additional parameter, |

`link` |
The link function, as a character string, name or one-element
character vector specifying one of |

An object of class `"family"`
