I have 'grouped' data, that is in the form of:

Interval        Median
0-9.9%:        -25
10-19.9%:     0
20-29.9%:     3
30-39.9%:     10
40-49.9%:     50
50-59.9%:     200
et cetera

and want to fit a three parameter gamma distribution. Does anyone know of an existing routine for doing this (or something similar)? Any help or comment is much appreciated.
