\arguments{
\item{type}{Can be \code{"normal"} (default), \code{"cauchy"}, \code{"poisson"}, \code{"chisquared"}, \code{"uniform"}, \code{"student"} or \code{"beta"}.}

\item{...}{Arguments passed to or from other methods.}

\item{n}{number of observations. If \code{length(n) > 1}, the length
is taken to be the number required.}

\item{mean}{vector of means.}

\item{sd}{vector of standard deviations.}

\item{random}{Generate near-perfect or random (simple wrappers for the base R \code{r*} functions) distributions.}

\item{location}{location and scale parameters.}

\item{scale}{location and scale parameters.}

\item{lambda}{vector of (non-negative) means.}

\item{df}{degrees of freedom (\eqn{> 0}, maybe non-integer).  \code{df
= Inf} is allowed.}

\item{ncp}{non-centrality parameter \eqn{\delta}{delta};
currently except for \code{rt()}, only for \code{abs(ncp) <= 37.62}.
If omitted, use the central t distribution.}

\item{min}{lower and upper limits of the distribution.  Must be finite.}

\item{max}{lower and upper limits of the distribution.  Must be finite.}

\item{shape1}{non-negative parameters of the Beta distribution.}

\item{shape2}{non-negative parameters of the Beta distribution.}
