Re: [R] k-sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov test?

I am curious if anyone has had any success with finding a R version of a k-sample Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. Most of the references that I have able to find on this are fairly old and I am wondering if this type of analysis has fallen out of favour. If so, how do people tend to compare distributions when they have more than two? Is it reasonable to pursue an adjusted p-value method. That is, could you compare say three distributions by performing three two-sample K-S test's then apply a bonferroni correction?

Just curious what some peoples approaches are when they want to compare more than two distributions.

Thanks in advance.
