What is "distrTEst" meant for?

The aim of package "distrTEst" is to bring together in one object all information about the data (from an object of class "Dataclass") and the corresponding statistical
procedure (estimator/test) as well as the results of a corresponding evaluation. (By now, only estimators are implemented)
To this end a class Evaluation is defined where we gather the results, the data, the call with which the object was filled, the estimator.
Objects of class Evaluation with identical data slots may be gathered in an objects of class Evaluationlist.
To generate an object of this class we use the method evaluate. Also special plot, print, show and summary methods are available; 
all slots are accessed/modified by accessor/replacement functions.


for version prior to 1.8, a somewhat more detailed manual to this package in pdf-format is available here;
from version 1.8 on, we have converted this manual into a common vignette to packages distr, distrEx, distrSim, distrTEst, distrMod, distrTeach,
which is available in the mere documentation package distrDoc. To use it you may type
        require("distrDoc"); V<-vignette("distr"); print(V); edit(V)
