I need Beta binomial and Beta negative binomial functions but in R there is
only SuppDists package which provide this distributions using a limited
parameter space of the generalized hypergeometric distribution (dghyper & Co.)
which provide a limited parameter space for Beta binomial and Beta negative
binomial functions (e.g. alpha + beta <1 in the Beta negative binomial).
I've done a checkout to R svn to seek the code for the implementation of
distribution functions (dbinom et al.) but I haven't succeed. I don't know how
difficult could be to implement Beta binomial and Beta negative binomial
functions having the PDF and CDF functions but I'm interested in implementing
it. I have programming skills but I don't know much about R internals.
Where is the code? Can I implement these new functions inside stats
package following the
same patterns as other probability distributions?
