prr: generalized probabilistic range ranker

Emulates the computations proposed by the "Risk Ranger" software with two kind of possible extensions. First, at each value, coefficients of variability and uncertainty can be added transforming the fixed value into a random variable. Second, different chain structures can be generated from convenient templates... "prr" for "probabilistic risk ranger" the initial aim of the package.
