# package doc ----

#' Extreme value statistics on a linear scale
#' 
#' Fit (via L moments), plot (on a linear scale) and compare (by goodness of fit)
#' several (extreme value) distributions.
#' Compute high quantiles even in small samples and estimate extrema at given return periods.\cr
#' Open the \href{https://cran.r-project.org/package=extremeStat/vignettes/extremeStat.html}{Vignette}
#' for an introduction to the package: \code{vignette("extremeStat")}\cr
#' This package heavily relies on and thankfully acknowledges the package \code{lmomco} by WH Asquith.
#' 
#' @section Package overview:
#' 
#' The main functions in the extremeStat package are:
#' \tabular{ll}{
#' \code{\link{distLweights}} \tab -> \code{\link{plotLweights}}    \cr
#' \code{\link{distLfit}}     \tab -> \code{\link{plotLfit}}     \cr
#' \code{\link{q_gpd}} + \code{\link{q_weighted}} -> \code{\link{distLquantile}} \tab -> \code{\link{plotLquantile}} \cr
#' \code{\link{distLextreme}} \tab -> \code{\link{plotLextreme}} \cr
#' \code{\link{distLexBoot}}  \tab \cr
#' }
#' They create and modify a list object printed by (and documented in) \code{\link{printL}}.
