Fitting Routines and Functionals of the S Distribution
by Sergej V. Aksenov
This is a Mathematica package plus C programs for fitting of the S distribution to data by the minimum distance method.
v0.99, last updated 18 June 2002

Source code of the auxilliary software libraries that are needed in order to build the MathLink binaries can be downloaded from the following URLs (see README for more information and installation instructions):
Download gzipped tar file sdist.tgz.
On many systems, web browsers can download, unzip, and untar these files automatically. On UNIX systems, after downloading the file sdist.tgz, the individual files within the zipped tar file can be unbundled by executing the commands tar -zxf sdist.tgz.
Alternatively, please follow links to pages from where individual files of the distributions can be downloaded.
