    A new R contributed package written by the authors is introduced. This package computes the probability density function, cumulative distribution function, quantile function, random numbers and {color{red}some measures of inference for} nineteen families of distributions. Each family is flexible enough to encompass an uncountable number of structures. The use of the package is illustrated using a real data set. Also robustness of random number generation is checked by simulation.
