Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

This function converts a vector of L-moments to a L-moment object of lmomco. The object is an **R** `list`

. This function is intended to facilitate the use of L-moments (and TL-moments) that the user might have from other sources. L-moments and L-moment ratios of arbitrary length are supported.

Because in typical practice, the *k ≥ 3* order L-moments are dimensionless ratios (*τ_3*, *τ_4*, and *τ_5*), this function computes *λ_3*, *λ_4*, *λ_5* from *λ_2* from the ratios. However, typical practice is not set on the use of *λ_2* or *τ* as measure of dispersion. Therefore, this function takes an `lscale`

optional logical (`TRUE|FALSE`

) argument—if *λ_2* is provided and `lscale=TRUE`

, then *τ* is computed by the function and if *τ* is provided, then *λ_2* is computed by the function.
