[Rd] Extended Quasi Likelihood Library

Hi everybody,

for my master thesis I'm currently working on a package providing a 
possibility to estimate the parameter(s) of a family of variance 
functions in a GLM. My approach is based on the EQL function (cf Nelder 
& Pregibon: An extended quasi-likelihood function. Biometrika 74 (1987), 

I've uploaded version 1.0 of the package to www.thothal.com/EQL.html and 
I'd highly appreciate any comments.

The package depends on 'ttutils' which combines some auxiliary functions 
and can be found on the aforementioned page as well. Furthermore, it 
imports package 'lattice' to do some plotting.

I'm looking forward to any feedback.
