Math::CDF -- Generate probabilities and quantiles from several
             statistical probability functions

This module provides cumulative probabilities [P(X <= x)] and 
quantiles [given p, returns x such that P(X <= x) = p] from several
statistical probability distributions.

This package provides a perl interface to DCDFLIB, a set of C functions
written by Barry W. Brown, James Lovato and Kathy Russell of the 
Department of Biomathematics at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson 
Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. DCDFLIB code is included in this module
distribution with permission of its authors.

Please read the README for DCDFLIB provided in the /cdflib subdirectory
of the Math::CDF distribution. In particular please notice in that 
document that some DCDFLIB routines might not be properly included in
commercial applications.

How to Install

perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install
