Hi R-devels,

I noticed that for the scheduled R 2.3.0, there is still no function df() for
non-centrality != 0.

Easter is quickly approaching, so as my little gift, I would like to offer you some code to fill this gap:

After excluding some "unusual" cases,
it amounts to differentiating the corresponding function pnf() --- which in turn leads to the function dnbeta() already available in the stats package for some time.

You may find this code in

http://www.uni-bayreuth.de/departments/math/org/mathe7/R-devel/dnf.tar.gz

This archive includes the C-File    dnf.c      
as well as some adapted versions     Fdist_new.Rd   
and     distn_new.R;
in the latter two files I indicated all modifications
w.r.t.  Fdist.Rd    and    distn.R     by
a corresponding %%-tag.

You may modify these files as you like in order to conform your design principles

Best,
Peter
