# Calculate sample L-Moments

### Description

Calculate sample L-Moments of a dataset

### Usage

1 | ```
lmom.sample(data,max.mom=3)
``` |

### Arguments

`data` |
A vector containing a dataset |

`max.mom` |
The maximum order of L-Moment to estimate |

### Details

This function is a wrapper around the `samlmu`

function from
Hosking's `lmom`

package, to give different argument defaults.
It calculates sample L Moments.

### Value

A vector of length `max.mom`

. The first two elements are the first two
L moments. If `max.mom`

is greater than two, the following elements are
the corresponding L moment ratios (the L Moment divided by the 2nd L Moment).
