Re: [R] How to fit a random data into Beta distribution?

I am also trying to fit data to a beta distribution.

In Ang and Tang, Probability Concepts in Engineering, 2nd Ed., page 127-9, they describe a variant of a beta distribution with additional parameters than the standard beta distribution, enabling specification of a max and min value other than 0,1. This would be very useful for my purposes.

Any thoughts on how to fit a distribution directly to this variant of the beta distribution, without starting from scratch?
