Hi folks:

Is there a lookup function that returns the variate given the cumulative
probability for an object returned by the density(...) function?

> mydata _ as.vector(mymatrix)
> mydata.density _ density(mydata)
> mydata.p80 _ lookup(mydata.density, p=0.8)  # is there any function to
accomplish this task?
