GeneralizedLambda: The Generalized Lambda Distribution

An implementation of a number of versions (commonly wrongly called parameterisations) of the generalized lambda distribution. Functions are provided (or will be) for the density function, distribution function, quantile function and for random number generation. Code has been drawn from a number of existing packages and reformatted to agree with the style of the packages GeneralizedHyperbolic, NormalLaplace, VarianceGamma and SkewHyperbolic.
