### Description

The prior function to calculate the Beta prior parameters

### Usage

1 |

### Arguments

`type` |
type of prior information: "MeanVar" uses mean and variance, "Optimist" uses (ORR) mean, "ORRN" uses ORR and smaple size, "ORRW" uses ORR and CI width. |

`mu` |
prior(ORR) mean. |

`v` |
prior variance |

`N` |
prior sample size. |

`W` |
prior confidence interval width. |

`init` |
initial value to solve the nonlinear equations for "ORRW" type. |

### Value

`parameters` |
the vector of Beta parameters: |
