Continuous or discrete distributions


Checks if the distribution is continuous or discrete





Character. The name of the distribution ("geom" for "fitgeom", "weibull" for "fitweibull", etc.


Returns whether a given distribution (used for a sad or rad model) is "discrete" or "continuous". The name is compared to a list of known distributions, so distributions not used in the sads package will return "NA" with a warning.

In the package sads up to version 0.2.3, the user was required to explicitly set a distr argument in some calls to radpred and qqsad. Now this is handled automatically, and attempts to set the "distr" argument explicitly are ignored.
