R Users,
         I was just wondering if anyone has written a program (or if there 
is a package) out there that calculates the different derivations of AIC 
(e.g. AIC, AICc, QAIC, etc.) along with AIC differences (delta's), model 
likelihoods, Akaike weights and evidence ratio's (from Burnham and Anderson 

Just in a "for instance" if someone had the -2LL, sample sizes, parameter 
counts, and estimates of c_hat output from a program, is there a function 
out there that calculates the above information.  I did not see anything on 
the help pages (or in packages, but I could have missed it) and I didn't 
want to re-invent the wheel.
