Are there any functions in R for fitting distributions?  In particular, I
would like to fit the weibull and extreme-value distributions when:

i)  the data are given and the maximum likelihood estimates are required;

ii) the sample moments are available but the complete data record is not
(so moment estimates are required).

Any suggestions will be gratefully received.
