Documented in explore

#'Visualise the weight distribution for given parameter values
#' 
#'Create a plot of the Weibull or Generalised Extreme Values (GEV) distribution
#'for given values of shape, scale and location parameters. Used to determine 
#'initial parameter values for \code{\link{weightwin}}.
#'@param shape A parameter that determines the shape of the distribution. 
#' Should be greater than 0.
#'@param scale A parameter that determines the scale of the distribution. 
#' Should be greater than 0.
#'@param loc A parameter that determines the location of the distribution. 
#' Should be less than or equal to 0.
#'@param weightfunc Choose whether to use a weibull ("W") or GEV ("G")
#' distribution.
#'@return explore will return an example plot of the distribution using
#' given parameter values. This can be used to select the initial parameter 
#' values for \code{\link{weightwin}}
